distributor rebuild question

I took my distributor apart, all looks good except for the springs/weights.
One of the springs returns to the original shape after I release it, the
other doesn't. My question is, are they the same strength? And, where can
I get them...would my local parts place have them? Thanks in advance.

They should both be equal. It should be a pretty
easy part to find.
Be sure and check for bushing wear in the shaft. I
don't rebuild distributers any more, new ones are just
too cheap.

Re: distributor rebuild question

Being equal depends on the desired timing curve... a good hi-po shop should
have a synchrograph and can tailor the distributor to a customers state of
tune/needs.

Re: distributor rebuild question

These folks are NOT focktards.... they are individuals whose skill sets are
based on other criteria. I applaud those that are willing to try something
new and will try to help as best I can (something the rest of us could
learn).

Googling "synchrograph" returns this
http://www.dynoplus.com/distributors.htm amongst others. And now they have
an idea of what it does...... focktard.

Re: distributor rebuild question

Well stated, Jim. I think it's time to go back to the garden store and
get some troll bait.
