kevinr Posted May 1, 2009 Share Posted May 1, 2009 OK, as the titles suggest, I broke something. I was reading another thread on optimizing a V8, and was reading an issue regarding the vacuum advance, causing some problems, so I followed the 'suck' test and got a gob full of air, I removed the flash shield and saw no movement either, so..I removed the vacuum advance thingymajig. The front screw was loose, and the rearward screw a PITA, but I got it off, cleaned all around the mating face, and retested, and sure enugh, no pressure, so bit needs replacing...all good (any sgestions on where to get a new one?..other then paddocks) Anyway, as I was reassembling everything, I overtightened the rear screw, which promptly snapped the threaded collar in the distributor casing, now, this bit is replaceable as far as I can tell, however, what kind of place would sell this, if at all, or can I resecure it with a suitibly sized nut and bolt?
