You raise it using the Main halyard and track.
Because of that, yes, you take it down after use.

Hi Mike-
I think to be clear, Neil is concerned that you removed the ENTIRE distributor as opposed to JUST the cover and rotor.

In a word... no.
Some on this forum change their oil at 25 hours and most of us at 50.
