Ok I may have messed up.:confused:

Removed the distributor as I have done every year to replace the points and condensors. Did the change, adjusted the points and put everything back in.
Made sure everything was seated properly, tightened the colar bolt but left the adjusting nut snug so I could rotate to set timeing. Spun the starter and no start so I figured I was off timing and went back to distributor to adjust. Loosened the adjusting nut and trid to turn distributor. No luck. Took the nut off completely and loosened the colar bolt to take the dizzy out. NO LUCK It is STUCK! Will not pull out or turn.

This has never happened before in all the times I have removed the dizzy and I followed my same procedure to make sure it was seated correctly and in allignment.

What did I do wrong and how do I fix it.

Thanks,
Bill

Odd symptom... Did you try clicking the starter just a teeny bit? Maybe it will help. I guess it is better than a hammer right? :) Good luck!

As Emily Latella would say "Never mind."

An eyebolt in the garage joist, a come-a-long and a length of chain wrapped around the dizzy popped it out after considerable tension.:eek: I know, I know, but it worked and nothing was damaged.

I have not a clue why it was so stuck, but it went right back in and worked fine.

Just another chapter in the Alfa Mystery...:p
