Default Re: B model distributor question

PB Blaster is your friend. So is vibration - tap gently and repeatedly.

I'm trying to buy a Model B distributor right now on ebay and the relative scarcity compared to Model A units is telling - but not insurmountable.

But more importantly one has to pursue this "gently" lest one break off the distributor at its base leaving the mount still in the head.

You might try removing the entire head. Another avenue would be to remove the drive gear from the valve chamber, invert the engine, and put PB Blaster in there and let gravity do its thing. Did I mention vibration?
