Download Old Distributor Removal: Note: Ensure the vehicle ignition switch is in the off position and battery is disconnected before attempting the installation of the Vertex ® Electronic Distributor. Step 1 -Disconnect the coil trigger wire coming from the distributor to the negative (-) side of the ignition coil at the coil terminal. Disconnect the wire supplying current to the positive side (+) of the ignition coil. (Note: there may be two wires connected to this terminal, one from the ballast resistor and one from a terminal on the starter solenoid.) Identify this wire(s) for future reference as the coil+ wire(s). Remove the old ignition coil as this is no longer needed. Use a shop service manual and locate the spark plug wire that is used to set the timing (usually spark plug wire #1) and mark this wire location on both the distributor cap and the distributor housing. Step 2- Rotate the engine crank shaft in the direction of proper rotation until the timing mark on the harmonic balancer lines up with the indication on the timing tab for TOP DEAD CENTER (TDC).… Read More

Download CAUTION: MAKE SURE THE IGNITION SWITCH IS OFF!! The wire from the ignition switch to the ignition coil primary terminal is NOT fused in many applications. If this wire is allowed to touch vehicle or engine ground, with the ignition switch on, it can cause a direct short on the battery possibly causing permanent damage to the vehicle wiring and a fire. Cypress Engineering assumes no liability for damage caused from this occurrence or due to any faults in the existing vehicle wiring. 5. Remove the ignition switch wire from the ignition coil primary positive (+) terminal. Make sure this wire does not come into contact with vehicle or engine ground. 6. Remove the ignition coil and mounting strap from the fan housing and set them aside. 7. Remove the stock distributor and set it aside. 8. Install the Compu-Tronix DIS4-2.3 L Ford Electronic Distributor. Tighten the clamp just enough so that the distributor can still be turned by hand.… Read More

Belt removal Step 1 Disconnect the battery earth cable.* Make sure the engine is cold before you start working on it. Step 2 Turn the crankshaft (in the direction of normal rotation) to TDC by aligning the “O” timing mark on the crankshaft damper. The distributor rotor should be lined up with the index mark on the distributor body. Step 3 Remove any belts, pulleys or hoses interfering with the removal of the timing belt cover. Step 4 Remove the timing belt cover. Step 5 Loosen the belt tensioner adjustment bolt. Step 6 Pry the tensioner away from the belt and retighten the tensioner adjustment bolt. Step 7 Remove the timing belt. Step 8 Carefully inspect the drive. Poor drive alignment, improper belt tension and worn pulleys all contribute to early belt failure. In case of excessive wear, replace the drive component immediately.
