Ya ... Kelly's probably right. When you take the cap off the rotor shaft rides up .... shouldn't be a difficult fix if the retainer bolt is at the base of the distributor,,,, Take the bolt completely out and MARK THE EXACT LOCATION OF THE ROTOR IN REFERENCE TO THE HOUSING ....AND DO NOT ROTATE THE ENGINE OR YOU WILL LOSE TIMING ... then you can pull the complete housing off the enging
