    The car is a late YB which came out of the factory the day before the coronation in 1953. The neat little panel can be seen in the bottom left of the photo attached. It is trapped under the rolled edge of the bonnet and, I assume, is soldered in place. There is on each side panel. It strikes me as a lot of work to go to for very little purpose but it does confirm my belief that the car was or...

    There are still lots of good dissy caps about (and lots of crap ones) I've always recommended the Distributor Doctor for his (true) 'Red Rotor' arm rather than the copies from Accuspark and Powerspark (SimomBBC) which I've bought (from both) and tested, they're fine for cost but didn't fill me with confidence for very long term use.

    Others have used Accuspark HT leads and found them to be...

    Dave,
    totally agree the sales price is higher, just using Moss Europe as an example only, Lucas 45D4 replacement 152.90, CSI 281.16. The CB ones may (or may not) be reliable for thousands of miles but will probably need service adjustment.

    The CB points type can be good but in my experience not as good as a fully electronic type. This may not matter if the vehicle isn't often used an...

    These are the Brass manifold clamps. Has anybody else come across these? Aren't these usually cast iron?

  • J P Hall22 October 2021

    Must have been a bit hard for folks - but I'm pleased to report that our own Tony Slattery, who with his wife Deb took tea with us last week, has unearthed a bracket for me. What a terrific resource he is - thank you Tony. I owe you.

    Today I was able to begin the engine disassembly. I found something interesting that I have never seen before. The the manifold clamps are made from cast brass not iron which is what Im used to seeing after pulling the manifolds I discovered that the manifold gasket is sandwiched copper which Im assuming has a asbestos filling. I wish we could still get this type of gasket construction for this ga...

    Peter,
    I agree very much. The replacement I bought was manufactured by FACET-Made in Italy (on the box). It is of very high quality. You can also get decent caps from "The distributor doctor" in UK.
    Regards

  • Peter Allen22 October 2021

    I had a problem with the Accuspark side entry dizzy cap where the ignition leads they supplied with the cap wouldn't fit in the holes. Maybe 8mm instead of 7mm. In addition, it was possible to screw the anchorages for the leads through the cap so the screw points could be seen like moles trying to escape through the top of the cap. They look more a kind of plastic than earlier ones that were more ...
