Re: [T3] Missing on Acceleration

<x-charset iso-8859-1>Well Jim you've done it again.  My mechanical advance mechanism returned to
it's position very slowly after the CW twist.  Oiling the felt pad didn't do
the trick so I opened up the distributor today.  I remover the breaker plate
so I could get at the advance assembly.  I used lots of spray electronic
cleaner because I figured it dispersed oil but left no residue then used
regular engine oil to lubricate everything when I was done.  Now the advance
is silky smooth and my faltering is gone!!  I don't know how you do it, but

Open up the dist cap and grab the rotor. Twist it CW. It should twist maybe
15 degrees and then snap back on its own when you let go of it. If it feels
rough at all, or doesn't return unless you help it, put a couple drops of
oil in
 the felt pad in the end of the shaft under the rotor. Check this again in a
 couple of days.
