It's a 35D8, date 49 74 ... so it is 31 years old!
It's ref number is 41382 E
The exact spring match will be a bit vague as it's currently on a 3.5
high compression vitesse block with larger valve heads and an old timing
cover! However up until a few weeks ago it was running pretty well but
now I'm sure it isn't getting enough advance and I think at least the
heavy spring has given up as one turn is definitely mis-shapen, the
lighter one looks ok but is still quite sloppy so there will be
immediate advance at idle which I don't want.
