Re: [DML] Farrar's distrubutor - theory.

I'm not sure what you mean by key -- the notch which makes sure the
rotor doesn't slip? I can't check it anyway. The rotor is still on the
shaft. It's stuck there -- I can't move it. The end of the rotor which
contacts the points was melted, and the rest of the rotor is charred.
