If I pull the distributor on m

If I pull the distributor on my BB512 to lube the advance mechanism, will it automatically go back in the excact same way or do I have to mark the position of the rotor and then adjust timing.

Also, what do you use to lube the advance mechanism? Bosch dielectric grease? And what do you lube?

Everything seem Ok with the car/advance but it hasn't been done in 3 years and I have the time this weekend. Guess I'm getting boared; it's cold outside!

Hi Drew,

you must mark the distrib & recheck timing. It should go back in place, but with the splines the way they are it's pretty easy to miss a notch.

The springs & flywieghts are under the trigger wheel. You don't actually need to pull the Distrib to lube unless you just want to. Some spray white litium grease should be fine if you decide to leave the Distrib in, otherwise any good grease that will stay in place. Don't forget to change the Distrib. Shaft O-Ring.
