Hi Ed,When I am driving and let off the gas the RPM's hangup for a few seconds. I had another 911 that did the same thing. I thouhgt it was a carb problem, rebuilt carb, same problem. Then I took it to Frank in Sacramento.He said that the problem was in the distributor. The counter weight was too heavy for the spring, which had weakened over time. He took off a bit of the counter weight and shortened the spring. I don't feel comfortable doing that. Why didn't he just replace the spring? Seems logical. Can I just replace the spring or is his method the only way to remedy the problem?Thank youRon
