    1985 4.1L Distibutor Drive Gear for oil pump

    What's involved with changing the distributor drive gear? I've changed my oil pump,shaft and pickup screen and still get a low oil pressure light and no oil coming out of push rods. So i'm down to the drive gear i think. any other suggestions?

    Once the distributor is out of the engine, you drive out a small roll ping retaining the gear at the bottom of the distributor. Press on the new gear and drive in the roll pin. Should be very obvious wear on the old vs. the new gear.
