    Thanks again, I like the 123ignition and I think I will put one one, I have a DUI distributor for my vintage landcruiser and it was the best purchase I every made for it and makes the car so much more usable.

    Low power coupe

    Just a bit of an update, the garage hasn’t found the fault as yet but they think it will be electrical, they say the caps on the plugs were still on so the leads were not connected properly, they also say the plugs are white so its running lean. They said they will check the plugs are the right...

    Low power coupe

    I am no expert but I would be surprised if the lights had been changed as it was all very original when I got her, only the radio had been changed to a mid 80s thing. It was owned by a big Oz mining company and then only had a few owners,,, it has aircon and an electric sunroof which I was told...

    Low power coupe

    Thanks Alabbasi, I think it's just going to be simple tune up but that could be wishful thinking. It's a 1975 but it was Australian so might be a bit diffrent from the UK ones (no rust), but funny I thought it was a W115 until today when I noticed when I sent Charles the vin it started W114
