    A lady friend of mine in her 70s worked in Belfast during the height of the Troubles and drove a Triumph Herald. She became adept at removing and pocketing the rotor from the dizzy. Never got her car stolen. Just a thought.

    Where can I find performance data for the Lucus D2A dizzy? I just had mine checked. The dizzy starts advancing at 500rpm, it's at 5 degrees at 1000rpm, and is at max (10 degrees) at 1600rpm. Don't know if that's good or bad. Where can I find out?

    Thanks,
    Tyler

    I agree with Matt, and it's not even about the cost/ value of the particular product or item. Support of a local business extends to consideration of what other occasions you might want or need to buy something else there. And what their presence does to enhance the continuing viability of the retail services in the area. Plus support for the individuals employed behind the counter.

    All ...

    Aside from availability problems due to location, I think that price is not always everything.

    Same old story, bricks and mortar sellers have higher overheads etc, but sometimes we just need to ignore that higher cost, if the service outweighs the cost benefits, then a non-monetary benefit has been discovered!

    Colin,
    I have to raise my hands here and say I've never noticed Morris is local to you so fair play to you for supporting a local company.

    How about getting Lodexol FS 75W-90 nest time.

    I've got a litre bottle of Morris brake fluid in my shed from the NEC ready for the next flush and refill of the clutch (again).

    A hidden 'in series' switch on the SW side of the coil, in effect duplicating the ignition switch won't protect the car at all when a villain hot wires the car by adding a cable direct from the battery to the coil.

    Splice a wire into the wire that connects to the CB terminal ( dizzy side of the coil) and take it back hidden inside the loom wrapping to wherever you want to hide the switch ...

    The ratchet crimpers are pretty affordable these days and seem to do a good job, I expect due to the Chinese making them. If you want price shock have a look at the price of new Amp crimpers. I have a set for Stratotherm high temp crimp connectors and new they're about 300 + VAT, fortunately I found some 2nd hand in California and even with shipping the price was acceptable.
