Not sure what caused it in the first place. Never had a problem before with old dizzy and old coil... Odd

Has anyone had trouble tightening the 10 mm nut to secure the dizzy. My socket now hits the body of the dizzy. And I have to reach it from the top with a open end wrench. Pita

I use a small box end wrench that I ground down a little to give more clearance around the nut.

Crow`s foot wrench with extension and ratchet was the only way I could turn the nut. I had a bent wrench, but I dropped it and it went into the Spica belt. That was a pain to retrieve. Someone makes a special tool for this - IAP or CL.

I have one but it will not get onto the nut with the 123 distributor. It would require grinding like my box end wrench - in fact I ought to do that.
