Thats good to know! At least I havent been wasting my money all this 
time. I always look at it like an extra buck per tankfull... big deal. 
But I cant pre advance the distributer, no matter where  I set it, it 
automatically sets itself. Was the strangest thing. Funniest thing, when 
I put in the new distributer, I had everything lined up etc...seems it 
didnt matter at all. I could turn it all over the place and it stayed in 
time. I was amazed.
