Ok, my 2 cents.......
As many have suggested, squirt the heck out of it around the base with a penetrate of your choice, many good ones have been suggested. Let it soak overnight. Then, carefully heat the block around the base of the Distributor for a good period. Be mindful, any penetrate you use may be catch fire if still present. Use a "strap" wrench on the circumference of the dizzy (distributor), work both CCW & CW. Or, grab a big Cresent wrench and apply "power" to the stem of the dizzy. I can very well envision, due to the electrolysis, that's probably present (aluminum/iron), it's very stuck! Even engines with less time in the barrel can have a "stuck" dizzy, due to this.
IMHO, I would not remove the engine until I got this distributor out, if nothing else, but allow you more leverage if having to tug and turn it. On a stand, yeah you ave better access, but, if you have to apply some muscle, it's better where its' at. Good Luck!
