    Can anyone provide any suggestions as to how to remove the ignition rotor from an 87-94 5.7L distributor? There are no screws and it looks like it should just slide right off the shaft, but from looking at the new rotor, looks like there is a clip in there to lock it down. Any tricks to getting this thing off, or is it just brute force? TIA!

    Yes it lifts right off the shaft and the new one has the clip in there to hold it in place and the old one should also have that clip in their. I replaced mine a few times when my MSD Offroad 6 #@*%ed up and was causing the truck to die. Anyway go to napa or to the dealership to get the parts and dont buy wells [censored] from autozone if they only have a wells part go somewhere else i bought a few wells parts and the [censored] went out agin in 10 days so i went and got the parts from napa and it worked fine eversince. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif www.zombieoffroading.8m.net

    Pull! That's the only advice I have. Be careful not to whack yourself in the eye when it finally comes off!

    Yes, definately use AC Delco...you'd be surprised how much better it will make it run than parts store brands
