I was doing some work on one of my RXs the other day and had some trouble removing the ignition rotor set screw. After bumping the engine 180 degrees I found a better screwdriver and a better angle and was able to remove it. However, when I went to put the new rotor back on I could not get the set screw to thread back in to save my life. Upon closer inspection I noticed the set screw's threads were full of distributor shaft... Somehow this little screw had pulled the threads out of the distributor shaft... So I turn to you folks, what do I do? Searching turned up nothing, but this can't be the first time this has happened? The fix should be simple, re-tap the disty shaft or use a self tapping screw, but does anyone have a recipe they'd like to share? Thanks in advance!
