Re: Bronze distributer gear problem
It has been eating itself up and hopefully is in the filter. I would drain the oil, change the filter and run a thin oil, 10/30 or less, get it up to temp and drain and refill with a new filter and the oil you use. My buddy went through 3 before going to the composite, no issue. You can also buy the gm melonized distributor gear for $40 instead of the $100 composite
I agree with Morgan, and if it were me I'd also cut open the filter to "see" exactly how much material from the gear was caught in the filter. It will take all the wondering out of the equation.
