[22RE] Calling all the boys . Help a brother out. I temporarily removed my distributor for clearance reasons. I finished the project I removed it for, but when it came back to putting it back in I've been stressin for 5+ hours. It won't go in all the way. Here's what I've tried:

* TDC compression stroke with rotor turned every tooth.
* TDC exhaust stroke with rotor turned with every tooth.
* 5 BTDC compression stroke with rotor turned every tooth.
* 5 BTDC exhaust stroke with rotor turned every tooth.
* All of the above with turning engine over while pushing distributor in.
* It's the same distributor that was just in it earlier today.
* It's like it's bottoming out on the cam or something??

* Any suggestions I'll appreciate...

sometimes they can be a pain(the o ring) and just need a little extra muscle to go in

no I didn't, and I have the valve cover off so I would be able to see if anything was in there. I'll post some pictures when I get home
