How do you repair the pickup in the distributor of a 1985 GMC 6 cylinder?

Just did this myself have to take the distributor off the motor. At the bottom of the distributor shaff, there is a pin. Knock the pin out, pull the shaft out from the bottom. The pick up is on top. Pull the clip washer off and remove the old pick up. Install the new pick up, plug the wires into the electronic ignition, Install the new (comes in the box) clip in place to hold the new pick up in place. Slide the shaft back into the distributor (from the bottom up) install the pin in the bottom of the shaft and you're finished. Put the distrubitor back on the motor. That's it.
