          Saw that a while ago.. so what exactly was the shorter rotor arm? is there a part number for that?

          My one is fouling the cap a little and needs to go lower, I have seen someone mention that the magnet needs to be firmly pressed down, but I would still like to lay my hands on that shorter arm.

            lucas made two different rotor arms for the 35*8 type of distributor fitted to rover v8 , the Triumph stag distributor and many others share these rotor arms

            the shorter rotor is for the electronic ignition Lucas 35dlm8, I sourced one of these and it fitted fine.

            distributor doctor in the UK is the chap I use for all of my ignition parts.

            everyone else that i have used for new stock seems to just sell the longer version and poorer quality

              Well, I've taken the plunge and added a video of some work I've done today - I must say, working on the Stag with one hand while filming with the other was VERY difficult!

                You might like to know that both of your carb covers are incorrectly fitted. There is a small 'extruson' in the casting that should line up with a similar one in the carb body.

                The larger 'extrusion' on both carbs should be face the outside of the car. Easy to fix.Undo the four screws holding the cover and refit correctly but ensure the tabs on the diaphragm fit correctly - they may have been damaged by being incorrectly fitted.

                  Thanks JML. I didnt know this at all - but interestingly while cleaning up the exterior of the carb, I had taken the covers off. When I put them back on I noticed that 'extrusion' and thought they should be lined up.....so they are now fitted correctly :-)

                  I've still got to strip the carb as it was leaking, so thanks for the 'heads-up' about he potential damage to the diaphragm.....I'm now wondering if that was where I was getting the smell of petrol from, as this would make sense.

                    (IMHO he has staggeringly good musical taste too! Great choice of music for each video.)

                          Might be an idea to move this thread to the Restorations etc folder?

                            Hi Jagorstag. Excellent idea - I've moved the thread to Restorations as you suggested.
