Distributor ?

hi guys i have a pertronix billet distributor for a smc. Is there by any chance somthing internally in the distributor that could be malfunctioning like the weights or somthing else. this is the problem im having ill start the car it will idle beautiful at about 975 a 1000 ill drive it around the block when gets to about operating temp and all of the sudden the idle starts to drop and bounce around. im jus curious if there could be somthing goin on with distributor at idle. it has the ignitor ll and ive heard if thats bad its bad and car will not run period. im guessing thats not my case. but is it a possibility the weights are malfuntioning? i checked cap and rotor and seems to look ok.
