Don't recall about the Ford, but the GM (oops) distributor had a door on the side that allowed you to adjust point gap with an allen wrench while running. (Back when cars had points!).

sounds like the oil cup door, small, round, spring loaded? lots of early distributors had them, for the upper bushings
