Yes one of your metal sleves has come off. Common problem in 84 and 85. It
can be fixed on a temporary basis but replcement of the unit is highly
reccommended. This part is OK to buy 2nd hand (junkyard) It will generally
run about $50. used. It will last about 2 years and you'll have to do it
again. If you can get a regulator out of an 86 or newer it should last
longer. Check the archives for the places to buy the parts.
