Probably pretty good. I have four distributors, three in cars that
all have working advances and one in a box that doesn't. Pretty good
My "pet freshen up" to every car I get to know is to strip, clean,
and reassemble the dizzy. A lot of times the vacuum advance plate could
be working but it's seized in crap. Even worse, the centrifugal
weights are often grimy so they only move in jerks, sticking often.
A quick blast of lubricant (let's not drag THAT thread in here
by naming names) and assembly, and they work great. Throw in a Pertronix
and seal it up for years.
