Ignition distributor: grease the oiler and the wick

Dribble a bit of motor oil on the grease wick A and the oiler D every 10 000 km.

Clean polluted contacts B with a fuel wet cloth. Be careful that no fluff remains on the contacts.

Check the opening of the breaker contacts (0.47-0.53 mm). If necessary ease the clamp bolt C and readjust the fixed contact plate. Replace the contacts after some adjustments, if necessary.

After adjusting the contacts the neutral position of the engine has to be readjusted, too.
