Yes, Steve's description sounded exactly like mine. I tried bending 
the fixed contact, too, and I managed to make it seem to work 
okay, but by the time I got it bent far enough to give the same dwell 
it was so far out of alignment (sort of hitting on the edge/side of the 
contact) that I was worried that it wouldn't be reliable. I didn't like 
the fact that the bent contact might tend to push the moving 
contact sideways.

How bad was yours bent, Steve, and how long has it been running 
since you fixed it?

Mine left me puzzled because I could never find anything about it 
that seemed worn or malformed. It seemed as if it had just been 
made wrong from the start, but it was definitely different from all the 
others that I had.
