There is not a cap but a Synchronizer, it takes the place of a distributor and has a clamp holding it in like a Distributor one. :)

you should be able to lift it out.

it would be a wise move to remove the drive gear from the sync and fit it to your dizzy.
While doing that make sure the positioning of the gear is correct aswell
there have been reports of mismatched gears causing BAD wear.

It should pull out. if its a little tight, pry it with a flat head screw driver.
