Last week I had an issue with a condenser failing and having heard about so many others having the same problem my knee jerk reaction was to go electronic.
This is what you get for your £59.95 with freepost. An up-dated 45D but you can get a 25D replacement for about a fiver less.
Brand new dizzy and cap pre-fitted with the Accuspark module
The new dizzy comes with the clamp set so that the timing should be about right but the problem I had was that the vac advance unit is fitted in a different place to my old 25 meaning if the new dizzy, if fitted in the same orientation as the old one, things get in the way (oil feed pipe one way oil pressure gauge 'T' piece the other) before you can set the timing as this position seems to fall in between the firing points so to speak and if rotated 180 degrees the starter motor gets in the way
So I turned it back to a point somewhere between but the 'T' piece still got in the way, so I removed the it and re-fitted the pressure switch to get enough swing to set the timing. At last he fired up an I was able to get it set up - just short of pinking with a nice smooth tick over, I've got to say there's not a huge difference but the engine does seem to run a little smoother - I guess the old dizzy must have been set up OK as he's been running well since the condenser failure last week. Luckily there was just enough room to get the oil pressure gauge 'T' piece back in but it's tight between the vac pipe connection and the oil pressure switch, I could trim the connection down and fit an elbow to the plastic pipe but I don't want to be altering the new dizzy in case any warranty issues crop up.
Of course this little problem wouldn't occur without having an oil pressure gauge fitted but it's one of those little irritations we have to deal with if straying from standard
Am I sorry I re-used the old clamp
