Replaced the bearing in the top of the distrubutor. No one lists this as a servicable part but I measured what was left of mine and was able to get a replacement from a local electric motor rebuild shop. Less than $5.00. Go to site like VXB Bearings, type in the metric dimensions and you'll come up with the right one. Be sure it's a 2RS which means it has rubber seals on both sides.
