The original S one was fitted in the 1/2" hose that runs from the thermostat housing to the inlet manifold. Both N.Z. and Aussie one's had these fitted . You should be able to pick up a second hand one fairly easily I would think.

Re: Electronic ignition

Nothing wrong with the Pertronix unit. Have fitted them to all my Triumphs and a big improvement on points and condenser.

Re: Tatton Park - Classic and Performance Car Spectacular June 2018

My only problem I have with the black rear panel is that they rust underneath.
