Will it run?

Recommended Posts

Pulled the distributor today to replace the gasket and clean up some of the gunk around it. I thought I got it re-installed correctly but now it's running like crap. Idles rough and pops when reved up.

Will the motor run if the distributor is off a tooth or will it not even start?

Yep it will run like that.

Move it a tooth and see if it fixes it.

If it gets worse or won't start, then move it the other way.


Good Luck.

Yeah, I verified I was at #1 TDC and the rotor was off one tooth but now I have to replace the distributor before I can try it. Oh well, s#*t happens.
