Just look at the new one, it's pretty much self explanatory! .. Just be sure to align it the right way on the distributor and seat the two clips securely... IF it's not real conspicuous to you then seek 'savvy' hands-on help.

So I do not have to have remove anything but the rotor button? Is the old one made as to just pull it up put the new one on and align the marks on the distributor?
