I took apart the distributor on my recently acquired 94 GT to find brown dust everywhere. The little center electrode in the cap was broke off. It stopped running today out of nowhere. Also, the little magnet for the pickup is broke off. What do I do? I've taken it apart as much as I can. How do I get the pickup out? Help please. I need to go home tomorrow. Until I fix it, I'm stranded in Denton. :help2:

your need to press out the gear and then the pick-up. your best bet since you have it out of the car is to take it to a shop. most shops should have a press there. and make sure they mark the gear to the shaft and the pick up, i believe they have to go on in the same spot.

good luck
Joe
