Yep ... spin balanced.  Just before I drove it from Oshkosh to your home on
Yuma Drive for the timing, valve adjustment, brakes, etc.

After you did that, it went "to sleep" up on jack stands for the winter.  It
was NOT on the rubber during the winter.  Can't see how it could have
"thrown a wheel weight" ... but maybe, even on those short (15-mile) drives.
New subject:
I inadvertently broke the "arm" of the right-side mirror off at the pivot
point.   Small (maybe 1/8" diameter/cross-section) post where it goes in to
the ball.  Fixable? or does someone have a source for a new one?
1969 Squareback; Right-Side, Mirror.
