Re: Distributor Rebuild? - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
You can't punch the pin out. You have to press it out. I've done it in a bench vice. I put a socket on the outfeed side so I had something to push it into, and used a hardened steel pin of smaller diameter to push the pin out. You have to make sure the pin is straight, because it will be under a lot of pressure, and will go flying off somewhere if it isn't. As you are closing the vice, ting the base of the dizzy with a screwdriver or something. The vibrations help free it up. Pushing it back in is easier than pushing it out. The teeth on the drive gear are offset from center. Make sure you mark the bottom of the dizzy shaft to get it back on the same way.
Some Volkswagens use a similar dizzy, check the link below for an online tutorial. (the guy made a special tool to get the gear off).
