Title: Distributor shaft lube system
Post by: gusmagicbus on 10 May, 2017, 23:06:20
Hello,

I have stripped the distributor on my C15 1964 SS80. I see that there is an oil groove and long recessed area along the drive shaft (the bit half way between the drive dog at the bottom and where the cam presses on at the top). I am meant to pack this shaft recess with grease when I reassemble?

Thanks

I think this is normally lubricated by the oil in the gearbox
