Sure looks like it gets grounded to the threaded hole in the alternator.

The cylinder slips into the head, that's not the mating surface.

I just built a new Type 1 engine and used Permatex Right Stuff on the base. It's good to 500*F and doesn't shrink.

Pull the distributor and actually look at the number. It could be a 205T or who knows without actually seeing the stamped number.
I clearly see 170 03 so its not 205T.

The Ghia engine is a Type 1. The only issues in a Ghia is the height of the air cleaners might hit the decklid hinges.

Yup... looks like 0231 170 034. You got an SVDA.

Could be any number of vacuum/mechanical models. Get a mirror so you can post the complete number.

I've never heard of a "flat spot" or hesitation on an Okrasa engine with dual carbs and a Bosch 010.

Does it happen when the engine is fully warmed up? I've seen old dried grease between ...

By "tuned out" it usually means a carb adjustment like enriching the fuel or a larger jet.

How about some engine specs such as carb(s)?

I suggest you learn as much about the weak points of the engine and drivetrain and do as much PM as you can to get it to last.

I'm sure the members here can clue you in on what to look for.

What's neat is that there's a 010 distributor and the #1 spark plug wire has the induction pickup for the computer diagnostic system.

Nice vintage detail.

You might be better off with a 019. The curve comes in sooner and you start with more advance at idle.

I've found one single broken spring in a 010 before, and it was right at the first coil. The entire unit was very, very rusty.

That's usually where I see them broken; where they hang onto the tab. ...

Sorry but camping for me is carrying in everything you need.

3000+ and not a single failure.

Spring steel is very resilient

The springs can get old and cause this to be too much.
I've never seen "weak" springs. The main reasons to replace them are broken or damaged. I've checked the tension of hundreds of spring ...
