I have one of those distributers made by mallory with the adjustable advance. The same one distributed by Vic. Brit. but mines fairly old. I cant get the advance to work properly and think the advance springs need replacement. I replaced the cap, rotor and points. The springs seem so loose as to let my advance come on at very low rpms, even idle. If anyone knows anytihing about these contraptions, please fill me in.

Thanks guys- Evan

I have the Unilite in my '82. They sell kits for adjusting the advance and I believe they come with different springs for tuning the curve, plus instructions. Check your local Hot Rod parts dealer.
