My '72 VW had a distributor advance plate that was held steady by a spring pushing down on a single ball bearing (I swear this was the factory design). The spring broke, the vacuum advance made the plate wobble, and the dwell and timing turned bizarre. I made several springs out of steel and aluminum cans.
