After my mechanic rebuilt the 4100 carb he indicated I have a faulty diaphragm on the distributor. The car has the electronic ignition install into the distributor. The car starts up now everytime without pumping the gas about 6 times. Should Ibe concerned about this matter. Larry

Even with the electronic ignition upgrade I believe you still need the vacuum advance to advance the timing. You should get a new one. It will be leaking vacuum until you do as long as it's hooked up to the carburetor.
