Installed this with an electronic ignition kit on my 1977 series 3 Land Rover with 2,25 engine and WOW what a difference! Strong consistent spark, easy to start without choke. Highly recommended!
I have just fitted this Electronic Distributor to my Mgb and road tested it, the difference is amazing the engine feels so much smoother and responsive, I guess time will tell on reliability, so far so good!
I just fixed the power spark D45 together with Viper Dry Coil DLB105 to my Defender 110. I´m so happy with the product. The car starts directly and runs so much smoother. Recommended for getting rid of some headache :)
Sorry guys can't give 5 stars because cam was 180degrees out, although fix was very easy. Easy to order and pay for, postage and packing - top class.
my land rover series 3 lightweight is not running sweet as a nut, thanks. the distributor was easy to fit and slotted straight in. Only criticism was that the low tension negative wire (black one) was not long enough to reach the coil. I had to extend with my own wire.
Very prompt response to several enquiries and prompt delivery.
