1997 Chevy Vortec Distributor - Broken Screw Flange
Performed a tune-up on my 97 Suburban 350 Vortec and everything was going great until I went to tighten the front screw for the distributor cap. It was tightening fine and just starting to get snug, then flange/tab that the screw goes into snapped in half/off. Unless someone can provide a workaround it appears I need to replace the entire distributor correct?
If so are there any techs that can tell me what the factory states is the hours necessary to get the job so I can get an idea of price? Also, any recommendation for replacement distributors?
Thank you for your time.You may be a redneck if... you have spent more on your pickup truck than on your education. - Jeff Foxworthy :he:

Thanks for the response, forgot to respond that the distributor was replaced. With my work schedule just took it into the mechanic since he is reasonable.
