Hello and welcome to just answer.If you're unable to access the bolt behind the distributor, the distributor must be removed.
The distributor removal is not all that difficult.What you want to do is remove the distributor cap and mark the position of the distributor rotor by putting a mark on the distributor housing, and also mark the position of the distributor body to the engine.Now upon reinstallation, you have your reference marks to go by. Be sure that when you reinstall the distributor the XXXXX XXXXXnes directly up to the mark on the engine.Be sure that the mark for the distributor rotor lines directly up to the mark that you have made on the distributor housing.Please let me know if you have any further questions regarding this matter or if I can be of any further assistance.Thanks, Josh
