My father's got an 89 F-150, 4.9L L6 and he's looking to replace what he called the "distributor," which is the round canister-like object that had the coil cap on top of but pictured removed here:
He just wants to make sure on how to remove it, so that he doesn't break anything. One thing in particular he's interested in is a hole on the lower outside of this thing, which he was wondering if it's part of how you remove it. Are you supposed to insert something like an Allen key to pry this loose?
Any information is greatly appreciated.
