Nothing special here, just a routine distributor clamp. Have you cleaned the bilge yet? You may find all sorts of treasures.

The bilge was surprising clean, or should i say, it fell in line with how clean this boat came to me. Every thing was just so nice from day one.

How does the distributor clamp work? i can see any way to tighten it down....

What Jim is trying to say is - the distributor clamp may well be in the bilge. If it's not obvious it's missing. It't a clamp that squeezes around the base of the distrubitor and is tightened by means of a pinch bolt - usually.

On mine it's on the port side of the distributor - down right on the block. It's a steel tab with a 1/2 or 9/16ths bolt head. The bolt tightens the tab to the block which retains the distributor. I've clumsily circled the tab and bolt in this photo

Interesting, thanks!

I did end up finding that the distributor clamp is still there, just nearly invisible and im told i need a sort of "crows foot" tool to get at it, much like an o2 sensor socket, i definitely cant get a regular socket or wrench to work
