MSD Ready to Run Dist. Weight Question

I pulled the springs and weights off a couple of months back and forgot to document the way it all came apart.

Getting ready to put it all back together and need to now the order in which to install it. I think it is the little bushing on the post first, then the weight and then the spring. I tried it that way but the weight doesn't seem to fit flush with the nylon pad that the weight rests on.

And is there a top and bottom of the spring?

Any ideas?

Yeah on my set up i used a silver and a blue. You just gotta find the sweet spot on the advance curve opening to soon or to late.

You can probably find what you need on the MSD site. Just search for either a spring kit part number or your distributor:

For example here is one

Good luck.

I even called MSD and the stupid tech told me the bushings go UNDER the weights. What a tard.

What did you use to get that heavy silver spring over the posts. That thing is a bugger.
