Re: dripless shaft seals

Re: 1976 Chrysler 318 CW and CCW distributors

Both distributors are the same. The clockwise 318/360 has a collar which keeps the distributor drive gear in place. Without the collar, it would ride up and wear the cam gear as it would not be fully engaged. Engine direction is always from the flywheel. Setting on the drive looking forward. An auto...

On an open or closed cooling system -- if you blow a impeller you need to find every piece before installing a new impeller. The general rule: Most manufacturers recommend every two years.

There is not enough room in the overhead in the salon of a 10 meter sadan to but a self contained marine AC unit up there. If the compressor is bad just change it out.
