    What model electronic ignition is fitted

    I'm getting my Stag back on the road after a few years stored up, it was fitted with electronic ignition when I bought it. In getting a water leak fixed I've had the pump out and blanked off as I've fitted Steve Hills water pump and alternator kit (both excellent BTW).

    The distributor has been out and the engine turned over, so I will need to set up the timing, but with points I'd do this with a meter then strobe it when running. But I can't find any details about this unit and wanted to see what they recomended for setting up.

    Picture of the plug from distributor shown as well.

        The Luminition is pretty reliable, the main weak point is the 3 pin connector between the distributor and main box’s and is easily replaced. If it’s working well I’d keep it. If not go for the Pertronix system, the cheap Chinese junk is just that.

          Yes, intending to keep it fitted so as to avoid points, now I have the intructions I can get it setup when the distributor is refitted. I need to replace the battery, I see Rimmer have just posted an offer on them.

              Gromet is 13mm across, hole in distributor 9mm across.

                Hello, Accuspark is, I think, the cheap Chinese electronic ignition. Pertronics is more expensive and better. I built in: Pertronix Ignitor II (9LU-181A) with a coil Flamethrower II (resistance 0,6 Ohm, up to 1,5 Ohm are possible, too) without a ballast resistor and only with „Suppression“-carbon leads.
                Best wishes, Dieter.

                  I have Lumenition for many years. I have the module inside the car as others have said they get hot in the engine bay. the Lumenition needs a combined resistance of 3 ohm and no less.

                    The Powerspark ignition I fitted in August 2013 is still working perfectly. Perhaps I have been lucky, but as It was so inexpensive I bought two, "Just in case" , and that second one stays in the glove locker, with a small screwdriver to fit it.

                        It is a fact of life that if you keep a spare of any component it will invariably be the most reliable component on the vehicle!

                          I carry a spare Powerspark Module & suitable Allen Key, so can change just the module on the roadside if needed.
                          In fact have actually done that once about 3 1/2 years ago. It didn't fail completely, just persistant misfiring when it got really hot
                          on one of our 80 degree days & a thrash on a dual carriageway.
