There is a oil pump drive rod that fits into the bottom of the distributor and the gear that's on the bottom of the distributor runs on the gear that's on the rear of the camshaft.

The distributor will need to be removed. The magnet is permanently attached to the distributor shaft and the shaft is held in place by a roll-pin thatpasses through the distributor drive gear on the bottom side of the distributor. Magnet on top, gear down in the engine, distributor shaft and housing in the middle.

You need to turn the motor so the first piston is at top of the cylinder to remove the distributor.

Go to a game that allows the gear type that matches the gear that you have. At the bottom of the screen in the game it will have a box with a picture of your gear in it. Click the box or click the number in the box to use that gear item!

The distributor drive gear would be part of the camshaft. The camshaft would have to be replaced.

User Avatar

Only if you change the drive gear. The gear is different on the 289/302/351W distributor. Outside of that it will work.

When standing on the passanger side looking at the distributor the top right plug is cylinder one (the cylinder closest to the distributor). The top left plug on the distributor is cylinder two. The bottom left plug is cylinder three. Finally the bottom left plug is cylinder four (the cylinder furthest from the distributor, closest to the timing gear). Hope this helps.

There is a gear on the distributor shaft and a gear on the end of the camshaft that it engages with. The gear on the camshaft cannot be removed as it is part of the camshaft. The gear on the distributor shaft can be removed if it is worn; however, this is rare. These two gears must be in proper mesh for the engine to run; one cog off and it will not start.If you need further assistance google ' finding top dead center on a 350 chevy'.

Typical: Remove distributor. Use punch to tap roll pin from gear at base of distributor. Use an arbor press (not a hammer) to press distributor mainshaft out of gear. Shaft will then easily come free of the distributor. If a hammer is used, now replace the complete distributor. Unbolt the pickup and replace. Reinstall shaft and gear being sure that gear hole aligns with shaft hole. Install a new roll pin. Install in vehicle. Set ignition timing.

no the gear stays in place , unless you take the timing gear cover off + the bolts that hold it to the cam shaft.no it won't change the position either unless you crank the engine, the gear stays in place.

The gear it is riding against is worn. If the gear on the cam wears out, the problem is with the gear on the distributor and vice versa. I have blown 3 gears off my distributor in the last five months. I finally pulled the front cover and found the cam gear is wasted.

User Avatar

Either the cam gear or distributor gear are completely worn out or the more probable. The gear on the distributor is installed using a roll pin. It's possible this is worn out and broken.

User Avatar

The distributor gear might wear out in an older vehicle that has high mileage, just because of wear and tear on the parts. A newer vehicle with less than 70,000 miles should not have the distributor gear wearing out. If this is the case, an electrical problem could have caused this to malfunction.

Oil in DistributorIt's been a long time since I've faced this issue. To my recollection there are two causes for oil accumulation in the distributor:Someone lubricated the distributor cam and the lubricating pad with too much oil. The correction for this is just to remove the oil from the areas it's not supposed to be.The other cause of oil in the distributor is the result of crankcase lubricating oil "migrating" up from the engine below. The distributor cam and its shaft is rotated by a gear at the bottom being driven from a gear on the crankshaft in the engine.To prevent oil from getting up into the distributor there is usually a rubber-like "O-ring" in the distributor [near the bottom] to seal the passage. If this O-ring is worn, then oil can get past it.There may be other causes, but these are the ones that come to mind at the moment.

remove distributor and check the gear on it.if gear is ok then remove front cover and check timing chain or broke camshaft.

User Avatar

Either the gear on the end of the distributor shaft is chewed off or the gear that drives it is . Possibly broken cam.

User Avatar

No. It has a blade that engages with the oil pump drive gear.

User Avatar

the metal wears down from the gear turning metal against metal

User Avatar

It should be turned by a gear on the cam shaft

User Avatar

It certainly could. It would eat the gear on the cam that runs the distributor.

User Avatar

You get the old picture that is flying in the air by the light house

User Avatar

Never saw the gear wear out. Distributor shaft and bushings, yes. Look for side to side play on the shaft. There should be no play.

There is a picture of a gear in the related link. a gear tooth is one of the things on the outside of the gear that sticks out. This gear has 18 teeth.
