Proper Tool for Distributor
Hello. i hope its the right category for posting this. I am trying to time the V304 engine and i cant seem to get the bolt un done on the distributor. I know it has to be some offset type but before i go spending money on something that isn't right can i get some ideas? I prefer to sick with craftsman or snap on.

I use a Plews Tools part number 72-163, 1/2" Distributor Wrench.
The drive end is 1/2" with 12 points.
Drive off-set is about 1", working height is about 10".

It works well on IH I-4 engines, IH SV-8 engines, AMC I-6 engines, Ford V-8 engines and Chrysler V-8 engines.
It also fits the Davis DUI (HEI) unit on the IHC engines.....basically anything with a 1/2" drive hold down bolt.

I purchased this one years & years ago at an auto parts store.
I see one on ebay for $35.00.

FYI: This was my 500th post.

Awesome. Thanks. I think I bought something from Sears, although snap on is usually the way to go. Now I have to find a better timing light not like the one I had before for cheap price.
