OK, I'm inside the fuel distributor now!! What IS all this stuff!!

I wanted to show three things in this photo.
#1: Raw gas in the lower chamber of the fuel ditributor
#2: The large o ring around the plunger
#3: The small seal on the plunger bushing (exact center of photo, turned upside down)

Obviously was leaking fuel, so, is the seal on the bushing the culprit? As best I can tell, there is no o ring inside the bushing. The big o ring just seals the fuel distribtor to the housing for vacuum, I think.

Cap'n,

I just finished installing a "new" to me fuel distributor. I seen those parts LIVE. Most likely your distributor is leaking from the seal from the control pluger. If you have the CD, it is job #07.3-1660. Just change both seals and you chould be good to go. Readjusting the fuel distributor is a different story.
I hope it helps!

I found the job on the CD, but, as usual I took a LOT more apart than I needed to, so I may never get this one adjusted to run again. Live and learn right? But then again, I may get lucky. I'm due for a little good luck!!!
