It's on the shaft at the base of the housing. You need to remove the gear on the shaft. The job can be done without a press but is more difficult.

If you still have the original '95 distributor, I strongly recommend that you replace it. Why? because it's only a matter of time before the distributor shaft bearings wear out and cause problems.
As I've discovered, it's a false economy replacing the PIP sensor inside an old dizzy. Just get a new Ford OEM unit and be done with it.

So, if I have a 95gt with the original distributor,( I changed my plugs and wires) do you think that I need to change the distributor? I have a MSD distributor cap that I am going to install this Sat., if I do need to change the distributor then what kind?

Not unless it's causing problems.

A new Ford dizzy. Avoid remanufactured units 'cause they tend to cause problems.
