Dear all:

Do I have to remove the fan and radiator shroud to change the cap and rotor on my 103 engined 91' 300TE? If yes, how do I hold the crankshaft pulley stationary when I undo the allen bolt for the fan?

TIA for any comments.

No. You simply pull off the plastic cover, unscrew the cap, then unscrew the rotor. I would suggest transferring the wires carefully one at a time so you don't get them mixed up.

Good luck,

Just like Larry say, no to all your questions. The only things I like to add are:

Be careful the bottom screw.
Replace the black cover, if it is broken. It is cheap.

Due to the heat from the engine, I have to replace the wire set. The spark plug connectors are glued to the spark plugs. They broke as I tried to pull them out.

Be sure to9 twist the wires to break them loose before pulling them.

Good luck,

Also applying some dielectric grease to the inside of the spark plug wire boots helps the next time you replace the cap/plugs.

Rotor and Cap-300TE

As stated by the other folks, you don't have to remove the fan and shroud for this job. However, you probably need to remove them sooner or later. There is ahole in the fan idler shaft which can be used to hold the fan while you are loosening the fan hub retaining screw. This hole is accessible throught a hole in the idler housing which is located on the right side (facing the radiator0 of this housing .
