Electronic dizzy 2.6

Postby Trebro » Sun Feb 11, 2018 11:37 am

Any experience of swapping points for electronic dizzy?

I've done it on my 2.25 a few years ago and it's been faultless

Any recommendations would be gratefully received

Ps I cleaned the beast for the first time in 18 months and thought I'd share a pic....

Trebro,

In my experience of converting distributors since my first Land-Rover 32years ago I'd go with it every time.

Regards

Titch has an electronic dizzy, but we carry a spare one with points ( already gapped) just in case

I've been using a 'points-assist' type Velleman Elec Ignition kit on 'Gronk' for several years.
Link:- http://www.velleman.co.uk/contents/en-uk/p199.html

The only problem I ever had was when the pivot on the points wore all the way through to the metal and shorted out the contacts.
That is to say, the kit was so good at keeping the points gap from deteriorating, a standard set of points completely wore out at the PIVOT before any wear was apparent on the contact faces! A temporary repair was made at the roadside with a tiny slither of a disposable plastic cup, between the pivot pin and the CB arm.

On the other hand, I have heard that the full electronic replacement kits will not produce a spark until the engine reaches about 200 rpm. Fine for the starter, but not easy to achieve with the crank handle!
