I've done a search of the archives but it takes too long w/ my slow modem.
My question is about priming the oil pump. I have heard that this is an
important step. I thought I understood the procedure until tonight. I
sought to turn the smaller silver circle in the hole left by the removal of
the distributor housing.
This 'smaller silver circle' has a pin running straight through it. The
smaller silver circle is enclosed by a slotted brass outer circle. I
thought I had seen where this brass circle is the bushing for the smaller
silver distributor shaft which turns inside it.
When I made up a tool to turn this smaller silver circle it had to have
a slot in it to grab the pin inside it. However. it doesn't want to turn.
I had hoped my special tool could be turned anticlockwise by a drill motor
creating oil pressure. But it wouldn't budge- where did I go wrong?
