replaced with stainless needle bearing unit decades ago and still kicking. with todays fuel, you can get some 2800 rpm springs, if you have ping.

Bad throttle cable? Accelerator pump hanging up?

It seems unlikely that the problem is the advance weights though I guess it could be.

You could take the springs out and wire the weights so that they can't move outward. Rev the engine and if it is still is slow to come back to idle then you would know that it's not the advance mechanism.
I have thought about lock-in em advanced But I have gotten to the point in life where stuff hurts worse than it used too.

Any play on the shaft that the long weight bolt , bolts into?

I have seen this happen. Long ago.
