    Crank bolt does not have to come out to replace the distributer. Dist needs to be done by someone other then a DIY'er.

    If you do it yourself
    You will need a 3/8 socket or a 11mm socket with a ratchet
    If the sockets don't work then you need gear wrenches
    First thing first
    I would put the crank pulley to TDC
    Then mark the plugs wires with paint marker so you don't forget where to put it back
    Then mark the rotor where it faces to
