  It's easy, and done right on the car.  
  Grip the rotor, shake it around.  If the rotor, or more accurately, the
shaft, wobbles side to side in any direction, it's loose.   One would
suspect that it is loose if the dwell meter is not steady when the engine
is being cranked on the starter or idling. The wobble of the shaft
affects the points' closing, hence the dwell angle, and the timing.

Armstrong and Girling damper rebuildings also.
