(the aforementioned .100″ distributor was moving around around 3 degrees). Sure, it’s a pain to drill out that pin, but you can replace them with a roll pin. you can also replace the felt lubricating pad while you have the shaft out. they get pretty cruddy, especially if the distributor was actually oiled per spec.
