A very easy fit, together with a Viper coil and new leads. Engine fired up easily; Timing with your strobe light was completely straightforward. Hopefully will be a long term success, too!
A new Distributor has transformed the running of my engine. Smoother, torquier, easier to start, and it just worked out of the box. The old one must have been more worn than it looked. I'm also very impressed with the quality, well worth the cost!
