Ok so whats the best way to tackle this? changing dizzy cap and rotor button, any advice/tricks to remove and replace in the crampt spot greatly appreciated, will I have to redo the timing? or could I just mark where everything is and replace how it is

yeah it ain't easy ..... won't need to redo the timing coz ya won't be moving the dizzy. rotor will need to be pulled up & watch out for the small metal clip in the base of the rotor [don't lose it]. changing the cap why not change the leads as well? cap only goes on one way & can mark where the leads go on new cap with the new leads.

just changed the leads anyway and plugs, doing coil rotor button and cap, cap looks worse for ware and ancient, its not the hall affect or tfi because the fuel wouldn't be getting in correct? will roll start as well and start off the key when its warmed up runs rough and misfires on 1/2 throttle, but wont start off the key cold start

So rotating the rotor when I put new one in wont affect the timing at all? some reason I thought there was a mark the rotor had to line up with as well
