Ignition

Post by Doug G » Fri Mar 10, 2017 16:57

Has anyone changed from a distributor and point system over to Electronic ignition?

If so how much did it cost and what was involved (How hard was it to do?).

This could make a good article in 'Moking'.

Hi Doug,
Yes, converted my English Moke to electronic ignition a couple of years ago. I bought a complete kit including a full distributor, ignition leads, coil and a set of spark plugs for about £85. It was pretty easy to fit, just had to get the timimg set up at the garage after fitting. I wanted a full distributor so I could still carry the old one if I had any problems.

This is similar to the kit I bought from Accuspark on e-bay.

I've covered about 5000 miles with it and had no problems (touch wood!).

Cheers

Chris

Doesn't matter if it is a gift or not. I will still have to pay +/-59% import duty etc when it arrives here.
