Removing and replacing magnetic pick up

What's the easiest way to remove the reluctor in the distributor as I have to replace the magnetic pick up
Thanks

Rock So I followed directions on removing the reluctor. I marked the reluctor and the shaft with a sharpie. Removed the clip and the circlip holding the assembly down. Gently removed the reluctor but felt the distributor shaft rise up maybe less than a half inch. I put everything back together but something is definitely not right. It's really rough idling. Could I have knocked the timing out of whack that easily? Any ideas. Car will not go down the street now

Did you do it while still stabbed in the motor? You definitely want to reset the timing anytime you monkey with the distributor. I think I'd find tdc and restab the distributor, it may be a good idea to go over your repair on the bench.

I did. I have never set the timing on a car. Feel so stupid sometimes when it comes to this. I fix what looks to be bad (wires were frayed on the magnetic pick up) and now it runs even worse.

Thats a tough on car repair (far more tedious than setting timing), if you can pull that off your selling yourself short. There was a thread recently on how to find TDC, but your probably not far off. Zero you're timing mark on the harmonic balancer, lin up #1 cylinder distributor lead to the rotor. You can do a "loaner tool" timing light from Orileys or Autozone to fine tune the timing, or you can get a vacuum gauge and set it that way.
