Drill a hole in the sender bulb that is stuck in the head screw a large metal screw in the hole and pull it out with a claw hammer.

So does the temp sender screw into the head or does it just stick in there?

Providing that you removed the threaded bushing that I told you about, it is just sitting there waiting for you to poke it with a screw driver as I told you.

Alright so as long as I put some lined up punch marks on my distributor and neck I can just pull it off and put it back in without worrying about throwing timing off? Throwing the timing off has me a little concerned about pulling it off.

Not quite that simple. You'll also need to know the timing of the distributor shaft. Both the shaft and the housing need to be timed.

Which has something to do with number 1 cylinder being tdc on compression stroke and being lines up at 24 degrees on the flywheel markings? The once you drop the distributor back in line the rotor up with number one cylinder plug wire?
Not sure if I’m right or wrong here. Need all the insight I can get. Never played with a distributor.

I have a 62 4000. Seafoam in the gas will clean up the valves. The spring hooks to the tab on the bottom of the battery box. The tab may be rusted off. The grease behind in the starter is pretty much normal for an old tractor.

After you put it back in and the witness marks line up if it doesn't start right up with gas and spark, just post back and someone will get you to 180 degrees from where you have ended up. No big deal it comes up here at least once a month.

Too simplistic in my book! The shaft is a hex. Therefore if one doesn't reference the position of the rotor, as well as the distributor body upon disassembly, he/she is going to have one heck of a time getting it back in time!

Sprayed it a few days back with penetrant until I could get back out to work on it. Bumped it with a screw driver and pulled it right out. Thanks for the tip!
