  • Q:

    76 Chevy It starts fine the first few times but then the flywheel locks up with the starter. Ive shimmed it every which way could the disributor be a problem?
    Asked on 12/15/2009 by Anonymous from Papillion NE

    1 answer

    • A:

      No the distributor aint a problem. the distributor has a gear that runs down and connects to the cam and that connects to the crank through the timing chain. check and see if the teeth are intact on your flywheel and starter and make sure they math up.
