1968 – 1979 VW 1600 Transporter Distributor Inspection and Repair

Provided the component parts are kept in good order there should be little need to take the distributor apart except in cases of neglect or very high mileages. One of the indications is when the measured gap of the contact points is difficult or impossible to set accurately and consistently. This is due to wear of the shaft or shaft bushes, or more rarely, wear on the cams. When the shaft or bushes are worn the movement can be felt when sideways rocking pressure is applied to the top of the shaft.
