I'm in the middle of installing the pertronix distributor in my 74 JH.
Everything is at TDC, the old one is out and I've positioned the new one in place with the rotor arm in the same direction as the original.
It doesn't want to seem to go all the way in though.
There is about 1/4" of the shaft exposed (note picture). Is that how its supposed to be or is it just that the clamp sucks?

Also, do I need to transfer over the vaccuum canister from the old dist. to this one? Or is it not even necessary with the pertronix?

Thanks guys,
