Not so dizzy

Recommended Posts

Mabel’s new electronic ignition fitted today,  not without challenges,  Darren took out the first spark  plug and it fell and wedged behind the starter Motor, I was able to fish it out with a screwdriver,  then the new coil was fitted. No problem there,  the distributor clamp had to be fettled as it became distorted after the  old distributor locked, so Darren had to  bend it back into shape,  everything then went smoothly. Darren set the timing and she started and ran well

what a relief - hopefully the end of the ignition trouble

Nice and smart .. purist’s look away as Wendy has gone away from the archaic DM2 set up for a far more interchangeable Lucas 25d electronic arrangement. No issues with the power feed unlike the Dolomite /late spitfire arrangement . Changing the leads and the coil is far quicker with the 25 as it’s all plug in with no fiddly screws inside the dizzy . 
looking smart under the lid !
