Re: [DML] distributor lubrication: fuel and ignition

 There is only one spring and the weights are also different. The one minus 
the spring has extra material spot welded to it. I tried experimenting with 
a Volvo B27 that has equal weights with equal springs on each weight. I 
wanted to get the two distributors compared but finally gave up finding a 
shop that still has an advance machine so I drove from Minnesota to the 
Houston open house last summer with the B27 distributor. The engine felt 
like it had more torque using the B27 distributor and pulled better in all 
gears from low speeds but it didn't feel like it revved as freely. In the 
end I re-installed the original DeLorean distributor.
