Refitting
All engines
20 Refitting is a reversal of removal, but turn the rotor arm as required to align the lugs with the offset slot in the camshaft. If the old distributor is being refitted, align the previously made marks before tightening the mounting nuts. If fitting a new distributor, initially set the distributor in the middle of the slotted holes or follow the procedure given in Section 8, then finally adjust the ignition timing (Section 8).
