Nice car. They say it's best to buy the best example you can afford; I doubt you'll ever regret 'paying too much' : )

Beautiful car. Trouble with factory ignition is finding a distributor with good ignitors factory J109 are moon beams. I used Bosch ones and hollowed out the J109 to act as just a plug. They are reasonably small so you may be able to hide them somewhere, wiring will go via Bosch ignitors and coils of course so a bit of a deviation from factory but you would have to look pretty hard to notice. I can find the p/n if you need it (BIM-something).

Thanks for the reply,

its still running the factory distributor, just sparking via that new system. I’d appreciate any help you could give me. To be fair, it’s given me absolutely no trouble at all, I’m feeling there was a reason that this system was employed, but I think it looks ugly and out of place.

You don't have to use j109s.. green bros used to sell a direct replacement igniter (don't know if they still do) that fits and does the same job but brand new. I used them they were fine.

I had a brief search and you can get igniters out of Taiwan. J109 but under a different name obviously. Unsure if they’re any good but from memory we’re around $29. Min qty though was 10 I do believe??

I think fuel miser do a direct replacement j109 and although some scoff at the name I've used their ignitors with great results. (all probably made by the same small kids in the same factories but with different stickers..)

Cutting them is dumb, stock springs will be irreplaceable.

 

 

Just remove them altogether

Yea.... I won’t be cutting them bro.

bit of a private joke with my mate up there ^

If I was to change anything, it’s be done so I could put original shit back in.

Seems to be a few eagers for sale this side of the pond. For both 13&14”  They’d suit a set of modgies just fine....what size do you suggest there tony?!?!?! :thumbleft:8-)

Ha! nah man no modgies - 

Buy 13" eagers over there, sell for profit over here & get some decent rims - Pine Engineering (based in Chch) are selling custom made 3 piece wheels ordered to your exact offset - check out there designs - not cheap, but would be something truely unique.

Aren't series 3 sevens all weird with the offsets?

No modgies?!?!

golly, you’ve changed!!! :shock:

Dunno regarding fucked up offset. But more than likely, I don’t see me changing wheels anytime soon. Just going to run with the standard ones. Perhaps after a few nudges and suggestions I’ll get some...??:scratch:
