Is this for your 87? If so, please move it to the Gen One forum.

There's a little plastic tab inside the slot that connects the plastic shell to the metal tab. If you can tweak it just right the connector will come off. Odds are it was designed as a one-time fit though, which would make it hard.

That said, if the grommet is leaking, that means the internal seals have failed, and oil is getting by them. Best to replace the unit entirely. That kind of wear is also common in the B series distributors, and by the time it happens, the shaft has usually worn to a point where new seals will not fix the problem.

Where can I buy one of these for cheap?
RockAuto does not have any closeout - Junkyard doesn't have gen1s!

you need to see who has the car and call them.
you might have to buy the whole unit unless it's a local place
where you can pull it yourself..
ebay might have something for you as well.
