Its running  :wave

Been out around the village in it and i can safely say it's made a big difference to the running, it's a lot smoother and the tick over is very steady.

Very happy with the results  :)

When i was reading the instructions it says about using the thermal paste but if it comes on a base plate you don't need to but as i was removing it from the supplied plate to the bis one i put some thermal paste under it first  :)

That does look good, I think I'm convinced!

I can't believe how fast it starts, about 2 seconds?
Mines about 90 seconds of cranking on a cold morning.

I have bought a few of these units as the shop is just down the road from me. Same price a ebay though. The shop owner told me that He often has an ebay sale on Sundays only just to boost sales so keep an eye on them  :)

Iv got mine now so need to get the dizzy out and figure out how to put it together, do you need to replace any other parts?? Coil maybe?

Hi Rickys1121
No you don't need to replace the coil

If you are fitting the unit to a Bis distributor you need to remove the pickup from the baseplate it was supplied with

I removed my distributor and stripped out the baseplate and drilled and tapped two 3mm holes for mounting the pickup , you will need to put some thermal paste under the pickup available from RS Components which helps to dissipate the heat generated

You can pick up your positive feed for the unit from the spare positive terminal on your coil

Whatever you do make sure you connect it up correctly

All in took me about a hour from removing distributor to back up and running

I think I have a couple of pictures I will post up for you

Here you go

The two black marks on the rotor are the points were the magnets are mounted to trigger the unit, it made it a lot easier when timing her back up to know roughly where it should be firing
