Use a distributor wrench to unbolt the hold-down bracket, and save the bracket unless you're using a replacement distributor kit that includes a new one. Wiggle out the distributor, noting the position of the rotor as it rotates. Reinstalling the distributor with the same orientation keeps the ignition timing in the ballpark.
