I've looked through the manuals and various posts on here concerning this.
I'm wondering if there is supposed to be tension on both weight springs when the Distributor is installed...
I've taken it apart and fully regreased it, new pickup coil, and new Advance, but I'm just noticing that one weight has a little more play in it that the other when touching them.

I'll take a picture of you have one handy.  I found a couple different pictures on here but who's to say they are correct.
I put them back in the way they were when I tore it down, but they could've been in there incorrectly.

I sent 1 picture my finger is pointing to the smaller spring with less loop , but the hook is longer on that end .....the small notch is on the right when U are looking at it the right way ..........
