2001 Chevrolet Astro - 4.3L V6 189,000 mi,
The contacts in my distributor cap and rotor foul out and become pitted very quickly. After messing around with fixes for two years someone finally told me that and O ring may have failed on the distributor shaft. Can I replace the distributor myself as long as I make sure the new one is aligned in the same manner?
