Let's install the seal now. I lightly oiled it and the housing. Push it into place with you're fingers making sure it's flat and not cocked to the side. I found a 3/4" socket extension worked perfectly for tapping the seal in. Just tap it lightly until it is seated.

To install the bearing on the shaft I lightly oiled both parts and supported the bearing on top of the vice not in it but sitting on top of it.be sure to put the bearing retainer plate on the shaft befor the bearing.
Now lightly tap the shaft to work the bearing on. The bearing will only go on so far so don't beat the crap out of it. It will stop where it needs to.
Now go ahead and reinstall the springs and weights. I used a little grease on the pins that the weights ride on. Don't forget the plastic spring retainer caps.
Now check the end of the dist shaft for any burrs and clean it up before installing it to keep from damaging the bushing which is pressed into the housing.
There are two cut out areas in the dist housing to accommodate the bearing retainer plate. Make sure u got them lined up.
The shaft should slide right in but may need a tap or two.

I used blue thread lock on all the screws when reassembling.
Useing thread lock install the bearing retainer screws.
Time to install the dist drive tab.
I thought about upgrading it but I would rather have it break than rip my dist apart if it ever seized up.
Back to my trusty machinist pins. The drive tab pin is a .120 I tapped it in and cut it off with a little extra material on both ends than flared both ends slightly with a hammer and punch th keep it in place.
You didn't forget that washer that goes between the drive plate had dist housing did you?

Now you can install the advance plate. I put some grease on the shaft befor installing it.
I didn't mention it earlier but u will want to note how the plate was cocked when u remove it. I didn't think of that and had to pull it back apart and spin it as my timing was off. No big deal but I wish I had mentioned it in the beginning of this. So if when you are done it doesn't sound like it's trying to start you will need to spin the advance plate.
That's about it the rest is strait forward,I belive it took me longer to post this than it did to rebuild it.
If I missed anything feel free to chime in.

He's done some mighty fine work posting this thread.

I agree with those E-clips. You've got to watch it or they fly across the room.

Again, good thread; haven't seen one like it on this site. Hope the Moderators will 'sticky' it.

Any way you look at it,
:goodpost:
nice contribution.

I feel the same, BTW.

It comes down to Karma (Car, Ma?).
Eventually, if you help someone will help you.

Just an update here. Be sure to loctite the Phillips screw that is located on the top of the shaft that the rotor sits on. I loctited mine but not good enough. I was chasing a no spark issue and found mine had backed out. This was not the cause of my no spark issue but that's when I discovered it was loose.
My no spark was caused by me exhaust coming loose and melting my coil wires togather.

I ended up having to add an additional washer under the rotor shaft screw. It was not getting tight enough and I was getting some rotor wobble which was causing timing variations.
