Sorry, I'm not even close, but if you buy yourself a Chilton's or Haynes manual for your car, you should be able to follow the instructions on how to replace the distributor.
It is not all that difficult, it just requires attention to details.

I wish I were close enough to help you, but that's not the case.
Just follow the instructions closely and if you have other concerns or questions post them up here and we'll do our best to help you.


One of the most important things to do is to bring the engine up to TDC on #1 cylinder, making sure you are on the compression stroke. You can check that by ensuring that both valves are completely closed. The rotor in the distributor should be pointed at the #1 spark plug wire connection if it is properly timed. Then, when reinstalling just make sure that the new distributor is installed in the same position. This is sometimes difficult to achieve and may take several tries to accomplish.


Also make sure when you pull the distributor that the oil pump driveshaft stays in place. If it comes up and drops into the pan, you will need to fish it out and put it back into the pump before reinstalling the distributor and starting the engine. It is actually best to replace the driveshaft with an aftermarket HD one while you have it apart if you can afford to do so.
