Before you go pulling out the distributor like a crazed tool jokey, make sure you mark the position of the distributor as well as the position of the rotor inside - trust us, it will save you the pain and headache of trying to find the TDC position of the first cylinder later. You can see the gasket mating surfaces of the intake manifold. Make sure you clean this area thoroughly with a gasket scrapper but be careful not to drop any foreign objects or dirt into the lifter valley - it's a good idea to lay some rags across the lifter valley to catch all the scraped off gasket material.
