The Distributor Rotor Assembly


Lets take a look at the Distributor Rotor Assembly.

When purchasing replacement parts it may be a good idea to replace known faulty parts first, therefore you could return the parts that were not necessary to get the care engine running.

If the car engine has not had a tune up and you know that the old parts are due for replacement then it would be advisable to do so as soon as you are able which will prevent any unexpected breakdowns and inconveniences.


SPECIAL CAR REPAIR TOOLS
Keep in mind that some auto parts stores will have rental or loaner tools available for you to use, and may only require a deposit and maybe a small fee to use the tool. Maybe if you are purchasing your parts there they will allow you to use these tools for free - it may pay to just ask and be friendly!

EXAMPLE: Engine System Components of a 1994 Honda Civic.

Distributor Rotor Removal

Caution: Some rotors do not come off easily.
Problem: The rotor is stuck and breaks off, and the metal base of the rotor needs to be replaced.

IMPORTANT:
The black plastic container at the top left of the distributor shaft is the Ignition Control Module (ICM) which may need replacing, especially of it is found that the spark plugs were not producing spark or a test of the spark plug wires did not indicate that power was being sent to the spark plugs when the distributor cap was in place. In some cases this may be the one faulty part which will prevent the engine from starting. To replace this part the rotor and dust shield will need to be removed and there are two phillips screws that hold the module in place. These screws are known to be tough to loosen up and may require using a impact screwdriver.

Removing a Stuck Distributor Rotor Base

NOTE: This is actually a pipe flaring tool, however a small gear puller locks pretty much the same except the two arms are not solid but adjustable so that they will swing in and latch behind the stuck rotor base so the puller can do it's job of sliding forward.

Electrical Tips to Help You Wire it Right

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wires!

The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester that I use to easily Detect Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.

The Quickest Way to Check for Faulty Electrical Wiring!

The Plug-In Outlet Tester
This is the first tool I grab to troubleshoot a problem with outlet circuit wiring. This popular tester is also used by most inspectors to test for power and check the polarity of circuit wiring.
It detects probable improper wiring conditions in standard 110-125 VAC outlets Provides 6 probable wiring conditions that are quick and easy to read for ultimate efficiency Lights indicate if wiring is correct and indicator light chart is included Tests standard 3-wire outlets UL Listed Light indicates if wiring is incorrect Very handy and easy to use.

Strip Off Wire Insulation without Nicking and Damaging the Electric Wire!

The Wire Stripper and Wire Cutter
My absolute favorite wire stripping tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and this is the tool I use to safely strip electrical wires.
This handy tool has multiple uses:
The wire gauges are shown on the side of the tool so you know which slot to use for stripping insulation.
The end of the tool can be used to grip and bend wire which is handy for attaching wire onto the screw terminals of switches and outlets..

The wire stripper will work on both solid and stranded wire. This tool is Very Handy and Easy to Use.
