  1. Ah I could kick myself...Reassembling my engine and last night I was cleaning up my distributor and it slipped out of my hand and landed shaft-first on the floor. I checked out the gear and there were no nicks or dings on the end of the shaft, however there is a slight resistance when spinning it. It spins freely for the most part but almost acts like it's bent. I hate to replace it, but if it'll save me trouble then I will. What do you guys think?
  2. id replace it.
  3. sucks but i would replace it too
  4. replace it. it sounds like the shaft is bent, and that will cause problems down the line.
