The "play" shown in your video appears almost certainly to be the normal movement caused by the spreading of the centrifugal advance weights against their springs. If in doubt, remove the breaker plate and take a look.

But regardless, do check carefully to make sure there is no sloppiness in the fit of the rotor to the shaft.

Ok I will check on that because it doesn’t feel “springy” like the other distributors I’ve dealt with, if fact I didn’t even realize it had centrifugal advance, I just assumed it was all vacuum as this is the e oldest car I’ve worked on.

Any ideas on what might be causing my spark issue previously mentioned?
