if the distributor is in the back of the engine it will be hard to see. so you might have to stand on the bumper and lean over the engine, it should be at the base of the distibutor where it meets the housing. if you feel with your fingers you will find it. sometimes it requires a special wrench to get at hard to reach angles and sometimes not . you'll be able to figure it out,just be carefull if you have the motor running.
