Re: Electronic Distributor

Hello Graham, have you got the right vacuum unit and is it connected correctly, i.e. to the carburettor outlet?

Re: Corrosion on Stag Alloys

That's better, S alloys.

Just spray some WD40 on a clean cloth and wipe them over with that. Works a treat.

Re: door mirrors for my pi resto

I know that feeling, it's scary!! Luckily, hole was already in the roof so it was just a direct replacement. I'm not looking forward to drilling the sills for the trim clips though......

I know exactly what you mean about drilling holes. It took me months to get up the courage to drill a hole in the roof for an aerial.

I'm not a great fan of wing mirrors either but our 2500S estate and 2000 has them. My Stag had them as well and they used to fold in at 110mph!

Our 2500S estate has the drivers door mirror and wing mirrors, part number 570896. I would have thought the wing...

Re: Recommissioning Woes

Agree with others on here. The rotor arm would be the prime suspect but it could also be the dizzy cap. Yes I know you have already fitted a new one but try again buying both from CW. I bought my car with the fault you describe and changing both completely cured it. That was 15 years ago.

Chris sells Cibie units which are excellent. Fit them with Ring Ultra Xenon bulbs and wire them up using relays and you will have good lighting, well up to modern day standards.
