Roger - I've never heard of a roll pin.  Is that within the distributor unit
itself?  If I went to my trusty Haynes book, would I find it listed in the
ignition/electrical section.

I'm mechanically inclined (read, can get my knuckles bloody), but not a
total 'wrench', so when you say an hour to repair include a handicapping of
sorts for me on the difficulty of the repair.

Also if there are any special tools required to do the job.  I do have a few
more than the standard 'crow-bar & blow-touch' rookie but nothing real
exotic.

Thanks for you help.

I believe Roger was referring to a shear pin that holds the gear that turns
the distributor to the distributor shaft.  The shear pin in this case is
what is called a "roll pin", which is a piece of spring steel ribbon  rolled
into a cylinder.  The advantage of roll pins, besides being cheap, is that
they are springy so that they don't come out of their hole.  Another
advantage is that the fit tolerances aren't so precise that the hole needs
to be reamed out to   0.001 undersize (say, 0.124 instead of 0.125 or 1/8")
or +/-0.0005.  You can just drill a 1/8" hole and press the roll pin in.

To remove the pins, you will need a punch with a flat tip.  You could
probably get by even with a nail set, but you couldn't use a center punch.
The best bet is a punch with straight sides that matches the bore of the
hole pretty quickly.

Hope that helps.

Chip

That is exactly what I meant.  I did have to use a small nail to drive out
the pin.
It's not very hard to do the job.  Pull out the dist., drive out the roll
pin, drive in a new roll pin (the one I replaced was a little long, so I
trimed it with a pair of snips), replace the dist., reset the timing.
If you have a vise and a set of punch's, it should not take more then 1/2 an
hour.  It took me an hour because I didn't have the use of either one.

Subject: what tranny has pto output?


Is there a manual transmission that I can bolt up to my 300 six that has
a provision for a pto?

Thanks,
