so what would cause 3 teeth to break off the distributor gear on an msd dist? took the car out last weekend, smoked the rev limiter once pretty good, then a mile or two down the road car died...no spark. pulled dist out which was tough...it was stuck...and found 3 teeth broken. no wear on the rest of the gear at all. strange.....so i guess i have to drop the pan...which really sucks.any way, any thoughts?
