Distributor

The distributor itself fits into a pedestal, and has an O-ring. The pedestal to block has a thin gasket which should be selected to achieve the correct end-float on the drive gear. If you're only changing the distributor I would leave the pedestal in place and not disturb that.

if you are unsure about the end float as its all been removed its worth checking this is correct 

details in the manuals ,                no special tools just a feeler gauge 

too tight you seize the drive gear  too slack you  get a good rattle 

so fit the pedestal and feel the gear has a few thou lift  before   you add the dizzy . 

finger down the hole ( or long nosed pliers ) we hill give a simple clue ,

Or if you want to be really accurate, use Plastiguage in two small strips either side of the drive gear bush hole to measure the end float (upfloat?). Book figure is 2 thou to 7 thou and I managed to get 4 thou with one of my collection of gaskets.

If you happen to have the sump off you can just about get your fingers in there with a feeler gauge between the gear and the bush. Again, only if you want to be totally accurate really.
