Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi I need to reset my distributer points and I am
having trouble finding them.
Are they in the distributer or the cap?

2 Answers


Distributor points are under the distributor cap. Some caps may have an access door to go threw so you can set the dwell with a meter. If not, then it's the feeler gauge.

I would respectfully suggest.....if you do not know where your points are located the you shouldn't be the one to adjust them. Take this vehicle to a qualified mechanic.
