I assume this is a distibutor in a 4.0L Cherokee. It is rather simple and much like changing any other vehicle's distributor but here are directions for the 4.0L. If the distributor is still on the engine: Removal - Disconnect the battery negative cable. - On vehicles equipped with A/C, remove the electrical cooling fan and shroud assembly from the radiator to allow room to rotate the engine with a socket and ratchet using the vibration damper bolt. - Scribe a mark on the distributor housing below the left side (past) the number one spark plug wire post of the distributor cap for reassembly reference for No 1 cylinder firing position. - Remove the distributor cap. - Turn the engine in a clockwise direction until the rotor is approaching the scribed mark on the distributor housing. Then slowly turn the engine until the timing mark on the crankshaft vibration damper lines up with zero on the front cover timing scale. P.S. The timing mark is located on the edge of the vibration damper closest to the front cover. - Align the trailing edge of the rotor blade with the mark previously scribed on the distributor housing. - Remove the retaining bolt and clamp and remove the distributor. Install - If needed, use a flat blade screwdriver to turn the oil pump gear shaft until the slot is slightly past the 11 o
