replacement distributor

PostPost by: seniorchristo » Sat Jun 25, 2016 9:24 pm

I suspect the Lucas distributor in my twincam is the original and may be worn out. Are there any recommendations for replacement distributors and where they may be purchased? I have electronic ignition {may be Luminition, not sure)
Thanks,
Chris :)

Advanced Distributors in Minnesota can make your existing unit look and work like new - and add a curve for modern fuels. I am very happy with the work they did for me.

Thanks Mike
I've contacted Jeff at AD. My engine is mildly modified and they seem capable of customizing an advance curve to suit. :)

Suggest looking at the 123 Ignition. Fully electronic and programmable distributor, hook up your laptop via USB and set your advance curve. Spot on everytime.

If in the States talk to Barry Spencer at Spencer's Motorsport.
