Electronic Ignition Kit

Having ordered the ignition kit last Thursday to be delivered to work, I checked today and could barely contain my excitement that accompanies a box of new Mini parts arriving. As you can imagine, I couldn't wait to get home and get fixing.

Box of new bits!!

None Starter

I have been suffering a number of starting problems recently. Ever since I took the dizzy apart funnily enough! and managed to drain the battery trying to get the car started which is very frustrating.

So what is the problem? Took the dizzy apart again and checked a number of things.

Distributor and Ignition.

Not done a lot of work recently, but have been enjoying lots of trouble free motoring recently. Checked the mileage and done over 500 miles since the last post. All that has now come to an end as the colder, damper mornings have been causing a few starting problems. This is undoubtedly caused by the shortcomings of having a classic distributor. They work brilliantly in summer, but can be a total disaster in winter.
