Has anyone had any trouble fitting electronic ignition from this company? I purchased the distributor along with new Double Silicone HT Leads & a Viper Dry Ignition sport Coil for my 2 1/4 1973 series 3 and as it had to go in for something else I asked my local garage to fit it for me. They report back that the Distributor has no output and is faulty. Simonsbbc have given me a list of diagnostics to carry out, which the garage have done and still it does not work.
Also generally what are thoughts on electronic ignition versus standard points etc?

Evening polochop
Some years ago I fitted a 123 electronic distributor to my Series 3 and power was down despite setting it up per the book. A misfire developed when the warranty had run out and the supplier asked me to return it. It got "lost" and I had a full refund which I spent on having a proper distributor rebuilt by the Distributor Doctor and fitted with Pertronix electronic ignition. I fitted a standard 2.5 distributor with points when I sent the 123 off and power was immediately restored.
The best thing to do is to send the original Lucas distributor that was fitted to your Land Rover to the Distributor Doctor for a rebuild telling him what vehicle it's for and getting him to fit electronic ignition.
