I'm trying to pull the distributor out of a buddy's '65 442 (425 engine) I took of the distributor clamp and disconnected everything else, I can't seem to get it to come out, at least not as easily as my sbc was. Is there any trick to this? Olds should pop out the same way shouldn't it?

Thanks!

I found that most distributers slide right out when you pull stright up. I watched a buddy bust one of the little buddies becasue e was trying to lever it out instead of straight up.

Some cars have it wedged back in there so tight that when you romp on it you might actually bump the timing out


Good work Adam, now lets get your's on the road.

I have found that Oldsmobile distributors tend to seize. This is one engine you want to rotate the distributor once in a while. The last one I had to take the engine out, remove the oil pump, and drive it out with a punch. I had to. The timing was 20 degrees off, and it was a car I had just bought.I even tried to heat it up with a torch before pulling the engine and it would not come. I was not happy. Oh well, it gave me a reason to detail the engine out.
