    My engine is slow to return to idle. If the advance is sticking, or sticky, could this be a cause. The dist is the Bosch replacement for the Marelli on, listed in the pelican catalog. 231 961 001

    In all my early 911's, I had to lubricate the advance mechanism and weights to get it to advance and retard correctly.
