Stuck Dizzy..................

Man ole man yesterday trying to set my timing from 12 to 10, the dawgone dizzy was stuck and I had to spray it down with one of the best if not the best penetrating oils and that's Shaeffers. Even with that and letting it sit maybe 30 mins, it still wouldnt turn by hand. I had to get a wrench on it and turn where it would grab, very gently and it moved some. Hell i even had the bolt loosened up and with car running it didnt move around lol. So between moving with wrench and tapping on back of dizzy to go a little bit further in that direction, I was able to get it set.

Will it be that hard to mess with from now on? Though I don't foresee needing to mess with it though, at least no time soon.

put it completely out and clean it up good / replace the o-ring. the only ones i had issues with sticking were the msd because the shafts are usually 1/8" too long
