I just pulled my distributor, getting ready to replace a head gasket, and noticed down the distributor that there is an open space, and part of the base is missing, I am assuming that this is not the way it should be, but never really took notice before, I would appreciate some type of confirmation, prior to putting a new DSS or other short block, (any ideas?)

Thanks

Todd

I've seen some 2-piece distributors (Chinese clones).. Pics would verify..

I think he means down the dist. hole. You know how the block looks like it is missing a piece down in where the oil pump gear is. Nothing is missing.

After looking again, with a flashlight, it is just the way it is cast, I guess I am back to the head gasket or possibly something worse.

Thanks for the input.
