Distributor Advances (Part 1) – How they Advance the Timing

In this video the tech staff show how a distributor Advance adjusts timing as engine RPM increases. Both Mechanical and Vacuum Advances are explained.

1999 Accord Distributor seal installation

I found out that my distributor’s inner seal leaks and thought that this is a 15 minutes job. At least all YouTube videos pointed me in that direction. It might be true for the previous generation of Honda distributors but not for this one. The coupling that connects the distributor to the camshaft is secured by a pin but the pin here is pressed into the distributor shaft. In order to push the pin out I had to create some “devices”. At first I tried to push the pin out with a long screw, using my vise as a press. But regular screws kept bending. So I created a set of short screws, one just a couple of millimeters longer than another. I also found out that the screws made for wood are much stronger (at least the ones that I had). I did not have enough room to position the camera the right way to show the process but I still hope that this video will be beneficial for DIYers.

The vehicle is a 1999 4 cylinder Honda Accord with 135000 miles.

HOW TO : GM HEI Distributor Pick-up coil troubleshooting

DIS ignition systems are much better in terms of reliability with less moving parts to fail however there is still a handful of us that cling onto old school distributors. The most common of the bunch is the ever reliable GM HEI internal cap. But even these fail from time to time. The bushings go bad and the coil wears into the housing causing a short and in effect a no start situation. Here’s an easy way to test to make sure your pickup coil is still in operating condition.

Honda Distributor Oil Seal Replacement

Honda Distributor Oil Seal Replacement

In this video I cover repairing both internal and external oil leaks on 1994-1997 Honda 4 cylinder engine distributors.

Many state if the distributor is leaking internally it can’t be repaired and to buy a new distributor. Well with the right part number and a bit of patience. You can fix that internal oil leak and save yourself at least 180 bucks.

I also address repairing the common outer seal leak as well.

Here are the part numbers you’ll need. There are different part numbers depending on which distributor you have.

You either have a Tec distributor with an external ignition coil or a Hitachi distributor with an internal ignition coil. The Tec distributor caps have 5 wires on them while the Hitachi’s have 4 wires on their cap.

The Hitachi distributors require a bit more internal disassembly but the seal replacement process is identical to the Tec shown in the video.

Tec Part Numbers:

Outer O-Ring Seal: 30110-PA1-732 (From Honda).

Inner Shaft Seal Part Number: NOK BH3888E (Order Online). The dimensions of this seal are 12.5 X 22.5 X 5mm.

Hitachi part numbers:

Outer O-Ring Seal: 30110-PC6-005 (From Honda).

Inner Shaft Seal Part Number: KOK 3286 (Order Online). The dimensions of this seal are 12.45mm X 22mm X 6mm.

If you replace your heater core inlet hose you’ll need to bleed the cooling system.

Here is a link to my video on bleeding the cooling system:

Replacing a Distributor, Acura Integra – EricTheCarGuy

Replacing a Distributor, Acura Integra – EricTheCarGuy

Well I think the title will sum this one up. Yes, I did loan my car to my brother the other day only to get it back with a bad distributor, luckily I had one in a box, not the correct one but one that worked. This also covers firing order and a few other tips should you have to replace the igniter or coil. In my opinion the only things you should automatically replace a distributor on a Honda or Acura for are the bearing going bad like in this video or oil leaking inside the assembly. I don’t think they should ever be automatically replaced for a no start. I also highly recommend using Honda ignition parts, if not you may be sorry.

There will be a “sequel” to this covering setting the ignition timing, click the link below.
