Not necessarily defective, but more likely set wrong. Specifically, your total vacuum advance is either too much (in degrees) and/or is coming in at too low a vacuum value (in inches). You can do a rough check with a vacuum gauge and a timing light. However, it would be best to have this checked on a distributor machine like a Sun or whoever else makes them now.

Those who choose an automatic transmission want transportation. Those who choose a manual transmission want to drive.
