Re: windsor distributor

Sounds like dissy drive and oil pump drive are stuck together??? With bolt out try turning engine over both ways? Twist rotor button either way, it may have turned alittle on oil drive???

Almost guaranteed, thin shaft twists in hex and sticks real good, to get it out will probably have to drop and put spanner on the shaft otherwise will drop the clip into the pan. Ps if U use the ARP drive the clip cant slide down due to the thick shaft.

yep i had exactly the same prob...but kept pulling and twisting until i heard that fatefull noise...clink mmmm was that the oil pump drive landing in the sump? fortunately it only landed back against the oil pump but it still took a couple of brain numbing hours to figure how to get the shaft back into the pump without droping the sump or in my case removing the entire engine to do so..(is in a corty and there is 20mm between the sump and xmember) i finaly cut the end off an OLD dissy and welded it to a screwdriver to guide the top and used a bent coat hanger to guide the bottom of the shaft back in the pump...needless to say im not removing the dissy ever again until im ready to pull the motor out and put a moly ARP drive in...
