RotorArm Stuck

Hello Gang.
Anyone got a quick solution to removing a non budging Rotor
arm on a 110 V8 3.5 Distributor. I have been advised to break the original.

John. if it's stuck, crack it by gripping with mole grips or similar to get
it off. If you pull upwards, it will shear a tiny circlip in the top of the
distributor shaft and the advance/retard weights and springs will fly apart.
Break it out if stuck, clean top of shaft with emery and wipe with oily rag
before fitting new.

I had something similar on my SIIa. I needed to get it all apart to
clean as the advance was sticking and couldn't get the lobe to drop
off the shaft. I put the dizzy in the freezer for an hour or so. You
might want to wear gloves for the next part, mainly because it will be
so cold but also in case you pour hot water over your hands :)

I boiled the kettle and run the water gently over the lobe, it
literally fell off. Not as brutal as using a flame as heat source but
worth a try.

All the best

Nope, just clean if rusty and a wipe with an oily rag to stop it happening
again.
