It depends how the distributor is driven, if it is an ohv engine or the distributor is driven by a shaft in the side of the cyl block, the distributor should be driven by a helical gear. To remove this you loosen the pinch bolt at the base of the distributor that clamps it onto the engine, give it a wiggle side to side and just pull until it comes out. Obviously remove the wires and plug leads first, noting the order the leads are in and replace them EXACTLY as they came off, also mark the body of the distributor to a mark on engine block so when it is re-fitted, the marks line up for easy timing. Hope this helps
