A couple of more things to add, if you just remove the 13mm nut on the hold down clamp you can remove the distributor with the clamp still on. As long as you don't loosen the long 10mm timing adjustment nut, the timing should remain extremely close to what it was when you removed the distributor. The distributor only fits on way, the drive tang on the bottom is offset, just rotate the rotor until the distributor drops all the way down when reinstalling it. Don't forget to put several drops of oil on the felt inside the shaft under the rotor, this help to keep the advance from binding and is probably one of the most overlooked periodic maintance items. If you change the distributor O-ring, it will be difficult to reinstall the distributor, this is normal, it is a tight fit with a new O-ring. Just lube it up and rotate the distributor body back and forth as you push down.
