Distributor wobbling

Recommended Posts

Evening all, I have been having some running issues with my 2.0 pinto running r1 carbs. Start, Tickover and full throttle runs great but when just feathering the throttle to maintain speed or ever so slightly increase speed it splutters randomly. It’s become worse just lately and is more Prominent when the engine is hot. 

now I’ve been thinking it’s a carb related issue but I lifted the bonnet earlier when the car was ticking over and the distributor is wobbling. Almost moving round in a circular motion so I’m thinking the spindle may be bent. Hence causing a missed spark. I’m pretty certain there shouldn’t be any movement with these from side to side? Also noticed there is oil on the base so possibly the o-ring has gone. 

cheers Mike.
