930 Help Needed with Distributor Advance, Retard. No Upper RPM Power in All Gears

I just had a my engine apart to replace a cracked cylinder. Now after reassembly, my power drops off after 3500 rpm and I'm compelled to shift at that point without the thrill of experiencing the upper RPM power band.
After reading other 930 owner experiences, I mentioned to my mechanic about a possible distributor advance and retard adjustment to rectify my problem. He said that mine is not functioning and I don't need it. He said 95% of all 930's don't have an operable distributor advance retard function and their cars run fine.
Please let me know if this is true with 95% of you 930 drivers.
Thanks,
Glenn

Pull the distributor and remove the pod. Soak the distributor in WD40 over night and loosen the section that the pod manipulates. When youre hitting a wall at 3500 your spark isnt advancing so the distributor is frozen and not working centrufigally or on the vacuum advance.

I don't think that many here will agree that soaking the distributor in WD40 is the correct method. Expand your mind.. Take the darn thing apart and clean/lube and re-assemble.

There are a few threads on this site that will help you out.

Maybe soaking and taking apart is a solution
