The lower bolt on the distributor cap is a pain in the rear. I have usually replaced it with the belt and fan shroud off . I have replced it twice usually during other repairs. I remember using the allen key long side in the bolt and using a 1/4 inch pipe as a "cheater bar"on the short side of the allen key to break it loose. The bolt had severe corrosion on it. I Cleaned it with a wire wheel and put anti-seize compound on when I replaced it. The next timeit wasn't bad, it came right out. Get a Bosch cap. They last a long time.
