|Left: How to remove the covers and various parts from the distributor housings. CAUTION: Do not tap on the rotor to remove it, instead use large flat head screw drivers. Do not work with the ignition system with ignition ON. Installation|
|Working environment: Find a suitable wooden and hard surface working bench for various exercises. Always protect ears from sharp sound when using a hammer.|
|Note: Measuring the distance apart from the tip of the shaft and the rotor with a mm ruler will ensure a correct alignment with the sensor during reassembly.|
|Remove it from the housing and place it on a pipe or wooden structure.|
| To ensure
a proper repair, purchase a new bearing and seal retainer, all available at the
location below. If the new bearing is equipped with a built in rubber or
plastic seal retainer then a seal retainer is not required. The bearing can be
repaired if a bearing is not available and the bearing had been producing a
screeching sound rather than a course sound. Just press in grease, seal it
tight and finish it with a seal retainer (separately for $5.95, + $2 SH,
Torrance, CA) Please see below for full address.
The following text is a copy from rec.autos.makers.honda quoted by RM and contained in it's entirety: The distributor does contain a bearing and seal. It is available from either two sources. 1. Sure Seal Honda Products WWW.TECH2TECH.NET, 1-800 645 7584 part # SSPDSTBRNG Distributor Bearing $22.00 part # SSPDSSEAL DISTRIBUTOR SEAL $ 5.95 The following is a quote from the Sure Seal Honda Products catalogue: "You can now replace the lower distributor bearing and or seal on many late model Honda distributors. These bearings and seals fit the late model TEC distributors found in Civics (88 and up), Accords (90 and up), and Legends (88-90). You can buy them individually as needed."
2. The second option is to locate a local bearing distributor who sells the Nachi Bearings. The part number is 6001/012-2NSL. The main office in Ca. is (562)-802-0055 and on the east coast (800)-537-2057. I called the east coast office and was given the nearest store which handled Nachi bearings. I called the store near me and they could order it for $13.88 plus 5% MD. State Tax. They told me that the part number included both the bearing and the seal.
