Been a while since I messed with one, but as I recall, you do everything from the top. Two flathead screwdrivers at opposite sides of the reluctor with a gentle prying motion should pull it straight up and off the distributor shaft, it's located by a small roll pin (don't lose it!) in a slot.

Click the image to open in full size.


After that, it should be easy to remove the pickup coil mounting plate, and be sure to check the centrifugal advance to make sure it moves easily and that it's greased.

Well, that's a part of doing a regular tune-up. The rotor just pulls straight up.
