Default Re: Delco Distributor Gear Removal

The gear on my distributor has a helical cut, so I think there would be a downward thrust force based on a CW rotation.

I think I now have it within Pertronix spec. I added one spacer to the magnetic ring, which moved it down towards the pickup. I had to bend the pickup bracket slightly to get .010 clearance. Adding the spacer also closed up the clearance when the distributor shaft is pushed up. It is now .050, which is within spec. Disassembly avoided!
