Ya.. I notice the mileage goes down without the vacuum advance..

I'm almost ready to put in a MP dizzy and ditch the factory points dizzy...

How is the point lead from the points to the disty?  I have seen them cause this problem.  Many moons ago.  Many moons. . . . .. .

Change out the distributor first. The mileage may have gone down because the distributor springs themselves may not allow enough advance for economy, a little stiffer than needed at higher rpm.

when the engine was reringed in 1997 they recurved the dizzy..

I'm thinking maybe I should put a points eliminator kit in the dizzy...

If the bushings are bad, that won't help much.  Those distributors required oiling which I bet was never done.

Is it just as good? Would I need to recurve it?

Anyone know how they determine the curve to put in the MP dizzy... is it stock type springs or something for an engine with a cam..?

I would think selling a dizzy that would fit all application would be difficult because of the different combinations out there..

When you buy a new one do you buy a spring kit with it? ( I usually get a dizzy off a friend or swap meet.. never bought new before)

What does the adjustable vacuum advance work?
