My plastic connector snapped off, make sure all the
terminals are in the right spots, and put a couple of
plastic tie-wraps around the distributer to hold it
on.  I've been abusing mine for the last year and it's
still on there.  Or you could JB weld it back on some
how.  Maybe some penetrating oil on the plug, but it
could be seized in there, hence the need for
anti-seize when you put the new ones in.
