Centrifugal Advance?

Doc here,

I'm a bit confused here, Do you mean the Centrifugal Advance unit below the Rotor , that the rotor Screws on to, so that you can withdraw the mag pickup?

If that's the case, you have to pull the distributer, and remove it from the block (if you haven't already done so. )

After you have it out, you need to drive the pin out of the bottom gear and Carefully withdraw the shaft. Then you can remove / replace the pick up coil.

Reverse the procedure for re~installing the distributer. You might want to replace the Gear pin (if you can find one)

I always Set the engine for TDC, #1 , Compression, With timing marks lined up before I pull the distributer, in case anything goes wrong..I know where the timing is..

You can do it from where you at now also. In either case, get a magic marker, mark the position of the rotor on the baseplate, Before you pull it up-wards, then as you pull up, note that the rotor will turn, where it stops turning, make a mark (or #2) at that point on the baseplate of the distributer..Because the gears are diagonal cut, the rotor travels as the distributer seats, like a plug tower width..

If you just set it on #1 and then seat the distributer you will be about a plug off by the time it seats..This is why making the 2 marks is important, you will need to turn the rotor BACK an equal distance to get it to seat on the proper position..(most guys forget this, until it's too late to mark it..)
