Tech Tip: V8 Ignition Distributor Rotor

How to remove your V8 Ignition Distributor Rotor.

Removing an ignition rotor from a Land Rover V8 engine distributor can be frustrating and sometimes become a nightmare for some mechanics. The problem lies in removing the rotor. Most of the time you will find thatIt doesn't want to come off and is stuck. If you pull hard enough you can and will pull the distributor apart.

The way to get the rotor off is to heat it with a heat gun or break it with a pair of pliers and replace it with a new rotor, part number #RNI002. The use of never seize or lubricants will prevent this problem in the future. Our shop has found silicone grease to be the ideal solution.
