The latest in the continuing saga of the rough idle. The bolt securing the passenger side distributor rotor bracket to the cam came loose and besides trashing the bakelite parts it bent the pin that keeps the rotor bracket in place and hence maintains proper timing. After much begging and pleading I managed to pull the pin out of the cam and am ready to install the new pin and close her(yes I invoked the name of our Maker on a number of occasions much of which was in vain). I have heard much about this problem of the bolt coming lose and would like opinion on the use of loctite (blue not red) to keep it from backing out and the torque to apply to re assemble. Thanks all.
