Re: Bringing ‘er back to life

Nice video

You have a nice clear speaking voice and the order in which you did things and how you reasoned things out was quite logical.
You obviously know your way around cars, maybe you're a professional?

Thanks for leaving out the loud music, bad language and other crap that other's seem to find obligatory in videos nowadays.

You mentioned the distributor rotor arm?
The distributor rotor arm, if held in place by 2 screws, can only be fitted in one position - if you look at the underside, there's iirc 2 projections, one square and one round, which engage with the top part of the centrifugal advance mechanism.

Al.
Thanks Ster1 thanked for this post

Re: Bringing ‘er back to life

Thank you sir. Kind words

While I wouldn't say I'm a professional, I have my own shop and I make a living turning wrenches, so maybe I more or less qualify (www.wlhequipment.com). I have been a mechanic in one way or another all my life. I've never worked on cars for a living. I hate cars. More accurately, I hate how crazy people get about their cars. I've been an aircraft mechanic, and those people are less picky than car people. I work on heavy equipment now, and love it because I can hit that skid steer with a sledge hammer and the owner won't give a hoot as long as it runs.

Yeah it makes sense that that rotor (arm) would only go in one way. Thankfully, that's the way it's in now
