AMC 304 distributor drive gear replacement
Ever notice how one repair / upgrade leads to another? While replacing my distributor last weekend, I noticed that the distributor drive gear appeared to be mangled beyond recognition, so ... Now, I'm open to any suggestions as to other logical repairs while I'm in there. I already plan to install the Edelbrock True Double Roller timing set per TeamRush's suggestion (thanks, TR). The water pump is only 6 mo. old, so it should remain good to go. Somewhat unrelated, but I also have a new fuel pump that I'll probably put in while everything is accessible. Anything else? What gaskets will I need other than timing cover & water pump? Any special tools beyond basic hand tools? I've never done anything like this before, so if there's any Charlotte, NC area gearheads up for a wrenching party, I'll supply the beverages of choice! As usual, thanks for your input.
