I am working on a 1978 Spider Veloce (have not yet got the car running yet), in any event I am working my way through the ignition system. I am planning on changing the points (among other things), both sets. The distributor is a Marelli with the centrifugal mechanism ABOVE the breakers. I cannot determine how the centrifugal mechanism is removed so I can get to the points?? My manuals don’t seem to provide this information? Can anyone give me a hint? Thank You in advance.

the easiest way is to remove the distributor. before you do, note the direction the rotor is pointing, then do not turn the engine over, this will make things a lot easier when you put it back in. while it is out is a good time to check other things, like corosion in the connections to the dist and such. also a good time to replace the capacitor. you can set the points easier with it out also.
