1) Remove distributor

matter whether you get the gear 180* around, but why take chances?)
3) Remove/replace sensor
4) Reassemble distributor (Clean shaft. Make sure shaft bore is clean. Drop shaft through housing. Replace gear. Align witness marks made in (2). Replace roll pin.)
5) Replace distributor, making sure proper timing is retained.
Easier said than done - but the last time I had to change a CMP (on RENIX,) it took me about two hours. Then again, I've done plenty of distributors before, and I've been doing this sort of thing for a while...
