- If you have to stomp on your foot-pedal starter, either you, or your starter, or your engine, has a problem.
- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler.

.
See if oil pump is locked up.
Distributor gear shouldn’t strip for no reason.

When checking the oil pump, be sure to look for damage on the drive gear on the cam. Not likely but you never know...

So it is a GMC 302 6 cyl. Best engine, you could have wished for.

So i found a complete distributor from one of our farm trucks.
Its a 1950 GMC 350.

It also has the 302 engine that has been used for spare parts in past....
So, i sprayed the distributor down so it would loosen up, hope to get it out today.

Gonna use the old distributor housing and center rod as a drive rod to spin oil pump.

But first i will make sure the oil pump is freed up.... I assume the oil pump is prolly stuck and that caused the distributor gear to get stripped.

Will also check cam gear for damage.

I will have to re-time distributor for No.1 cylinder as well...
Keep ya’ll posted.

Brian
