    Seconded. If your ignition is electronic, you've most likely fried it. I did the same thing years ago with a Pertronix electronic ignition conversion which replaces the points in the distributor. ...

    Well, I've been away to Wales but I've spent the last two days getting a good bit of work done. I wrapped the screen in polythene and added some packing here and there to keep the chopped-strand...
