Hi dear 170-friends. The ignition is nearly perfect, but now I have to remove one spark plug to add grease in the lubrication cup. Is it possible to turn everything 180 degrees and can something go wrong when doing it? I think I need a good advice :)
Best regards
Sverre

Hello Sverre, I answered in the German forum as well. The distributor doesn't care in which direction it points, of course as long that you also move the ignition cables to the spark plug of the correct cylinder. You may turn it 90, 180 or 270, whichever fits the situation best.

Hello Sverre, as Alfred pointed out in the German section, the oil pump when installed must be oriented so that the notch on the pump axle for the distributor drive is parallel with the camshaft, when cylinder 1 is at TDC. I enclose a section of the shop manual in English. If you don't already have the English shop manual, let me know. I can send it to you as a pdf file.

Hi Jim
Thank you very much. What should I do without you. Now I understand. As far as I know or for sure not after I bought the car the engine has not been opened. It is running nice and this is the only little problem. I have a litle leak in a zimring between the engine and the gearbox so sooner or later I have to take out the engine and then I will put everything together correctly. I have found other small strange repairs done maybe early in the '50 without correct spareparts, so I had to put it back in original mode. If you have the repairbook digital I would like to get a copy on my mailadress.  :)

Thank you very much!

Best regards Sverre
