First start by removing the elecrtical plug, then remove the coil and spark plug wires. Now losen the valve cover bolts(don't worry the gasket reseals upon reassembly) now remove the two bolts that hold the distributor against the head, now gently slide the distributor out , do not under any circumstances pry on the distributor where it bolts to the motor, the distributor casing could break(speaking from experience) to reassemble follow steps in reverse order(make sure you do not turn the motor over with the distributor out because you could screw up the timing)
