On my first JH (14313) I was forever having the 25D pop out when I loosened to adjust the timing. It may have been because the skirt was already cracked, but anyway it finally broke completely. I took to a friendly machine shop and they cut away the aluminum skirt and replaced with a press fit steel sleeve. I asked them to add a very slight raised "catch" at the end. Just enough that the pinch clamp would catch and I could loosen the clamp and turn the distributor without having to worry about it popping out on me, which as you know makes for a bigger project. I could still remove the distributor by putting a flat screwdriver at the end of the clamp and twisting. Has anyone else done this?
