Re: Squealing distributor? 302W
The Distributor shaft does in fact have a couple of wear points, know that (at least some) rebuilders install bushings to restore proper fit on high mileage units, but have not heard a distributor squeal (doesn't mean it couldn't happen, though ). Are you sure it isn't a belt for the alternator or possiblly power steering, if so equipped, squealing?
Just a thought; have run into that repeatedly over the years.
