Dist Vacuum Advance Problems
Maybe someone out there can help me out. I got the Scout back from the
mechanic Friday, after he set up my new carb and did some diagnostics.
He listed as one of the problems, as being a "weak" distributor vacuum
advance unit. Is there anyway to fix this or just simpler to replace?
I guess the vacuum unit is not appling enough advance to the
distributor. The dist is remanufactured, and this is the first
installation of it. I can't remember if the vacuum advance came with
the unit or if I pirated it off of another dist. This is a Prestolite
points dist. Would a prestolite electronic dist vac advance work? What
about one off of a holley dist? What about an adjustable one from
summit? The replacement advance from the autoparts store is goin to run
~$37. Any input would be appriciated.
