r29 a4 tuneup

I just purchased a Ranger 29 (Haul#27) and am curious to how to get to the points and condenser on the a-4. How hard is it to pull the whole distributor out to work on it on a bench.

Also it has an old Standard brand wind speed and direction meter that doesn''t work, can it be repaired. I would like to keep the original interments if possible.

Better to replace the points and condenser with an electronic module ... easy retrofit (change to a ''hotter'' coil at the same time) from Indigo Electronics: www.atomic-4.com. If you have an A4 the best investment you can make to keep it running well is: the "Atomic 4 Service and Overhual Manual" by Don Moyer: www.moyermarine.com. Its pricey but one single sojourn into that book will save you $$$$$$$$$$$$$ as most marine mechanics have forgotten how to work on and FIX an A4; they know how to replace but not FIX and maintain.
