This is not a complete instructional video on how to "overhaul" the M116 and M117 D-Jetronic fuel injected V8 distributor. There is lots of information out there on installing new points, setting the dwell and timing, replacing the cap and wires, etc. Rather this video focuses on bench inspection and cleaning to help prevent problems when installing new parts on the distributor. These are "tricky" distributors and to make them behave right some of the service tips I share are actually more important than installing new points, cap, and rotor! This includes checking for shaft play, removing and inspecting the points, inspection and cleaning the points cam, removing and cleaning the trigger points, and lubing the distributor for extended service life.
The video does NOT include how to repair or adjust the trigger points nor does it cover adjusting the distributor with a dwell meter and timing light once it is reinstalled in the engine.
