K3 & R5 - Powerspark Electronic Ignition Kit for Late Rover V8 Lucas 35D Distributor
Designed to replace the points and condenser inside a Lucas 35D Distributor. The Lucas 35D was fitted to a wide range of vehicles including Land Rover, Range Rover, Rover, TVR, Morgan and more.
This is suitable for later Rover V8s. Late Rover V8s are engines classed as post 1976. As many engines have been swapped or have been converted to the later front cover, it is not always easy to identify whether a Rover V8 is early or late. This can be done from the engine number, so if you aren't sure, or need help identifying which distributor your Rover V8 engined car has, then please call us.
It is a complete kit to convert your car to electronic ignition, including a Powermax moulded Red Rotor Arm. Fitting is easy and instructions are included with the packaging, as well as available online.
Electronic ignition will give your classic car better starting and smoother running.

Powerspark Electronic Ignition explained in more detail:
The kit uses a simple magnetic trigger and optimises dwell to provide a reliable and consistent spark across the rev range. It is easy to install and maintenance free.
Each kit comprises a baseplate with electronic module, trigger ring and all wiring. The new electronic baseplate mounts exactly where the points and condenser baseplate sat. The kit connects directly to the coil using the wires provided, red to the positive side and black to the negative side. The ignition kit will automatically shut down if the ignition is left switched on without the engine running to prevent component damage.
Powerspark Electronic Ignition Kits are designed to work with a coil resistance above 1.5 ohms, typically 3.0 ohms. Some performance coils operate at a lower resistance and will need the High Energy electronic ignition kit.
