Hello everyone. I’ve change the o ring on my distributor, on my g200. It still leaks oil, but its coming from the center. Is their a seal in the middle??
That’s a good question. If not, Daihatsu was depending on tight clerances, to the point where oil viscosity could not flow through.
The following image is what Daihatsu officially publishes. If the shaft does not wobble upon applying pressure, I would get a drift out for driving out that pin located at the end of this orange arrow, in order to see if an internal seal was installed into either the housing or the shaft itself.
It would make sense that these breaker point distributors would wear out much faster than those using frictionless magnetic impulses
You now have an excuse for updating your G200 to electronic ignition and fuel injection. All that’s missing is a donor vehicle
