The even less alarming possibility is that *nothing* broke, but the distributor wasn't
locked in as tight as it should have been. It crept up, lost hold of the drive cog and the
rest is history.

I guess I need to learn to be a lot more FIRM in testing the tightness of some things. The
car itself is a lot less gentle toward itself than I in some respects it seems.

Thanks for the advice all! I'd have been wracking my brain over this one for sure without
the list.

Cheers,
