    I have been looking in my Demon Tweaks catalogue and they sell Lumenition or Magnetronics. I am slightly leaning towards the Lumenition though as they have been around for a long time.

    Ummm, Lumenition near 2 x price of Aldon Ignitor (I think Magnetronics maybe similar) or similar, also has external leccytronic box which needs mounting to something and protecting from water. Agricultural V%$o lump don't need anything too scientific so that rules out Microdynamic mappables etc. Of all the people I know with the I know of NO failures. As I said earlier Aldon is Pertronix which have been around in the USA very long time.

    The Aldon Ignitor seems to only be for Lucas distributors and is about the same price or a little bit more than Lumenition. The Magtronic system is 78.67 from Demon Tweaks and does not seem to have a box. Everything seems to fit in the distributor.

    The Magtronic and ignitor are so close in appearance to be virtually identical but I have no experience of the Magtronic. This link is for a whole heap of Ignitors for the Bosch dizzies <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.aldonauto.co.uk/shop/asp/product.asp?product=91&cat=39&ph=&keywords=&recor= &SearchFor=&PT_ID=>http://www.aldonauto.co.uk/shop/asp/product.asp?product=91&cat=39&ph=&keywords=&recor= &SearchFor=&PT_ID=</A>

    Thanks for the link I probably should have persevered more. My problem is not knowing the model number of the distributor. Every time I try and find out if there is a fixing kit I draw a blank when they say they need to know which distributor is fitted.

    Nearly all, if not all, 4 pot ohc lumps used the JF4 dizzy.. So the settings for your lump will be something in the region of 6degress btdc initial setting or 34-35 degress on the strobe. But this is max advance so will have to be set at about 3600-4000 rpm. If they need to know the dwell angle its about 60 degrees I think. not 100% sure.

    Probably teaching granny to suck eggs, but when you fit the gubbins in. Check that the centrifugal weights under the base plate work ok. A lot of running probs arise from them sticking. careful of the springs though, you cant get them anymore! Oh and if the system your gonna use does a way with the externally mounted condenser, which nearly all do, make sure you put the screw back in and cover the hole where the gromment went in. Other wise moisture, spark protected, blah, blah, blah. You get the picture.
