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.
