Mini Spares specification for best alround performance electric distributor for std to 276 camshaft profiles see C-27H7698

Distributor drive spindle if required is 12G3560

Distributor clamp plate is TAM1671

Bolt for clamp is TAM1706 A Plus Vacuum Distributors equivalent lucas number 41907-for 1988 lead free and replaces AAU9142 and lucas 417658-for flat top pistons or high compression.

We have now found it works on dished pistons equally as well with current petrol available and vac unit fitted.For best performance and tune we advise our electronic evolution version C-27H7701

The modern demands of fuel economy and performance with the very poor petrol available today often makes a "vacuum advance" distributor a must. The vac unit

fitted on this distributor is the one that works best.

Not for AUTOGRASS racers due to the way they are manufactured because they look like the weights have been modified which the scrutineers do not like.

For 1275 A plus engines see ADU3825



Range of modern day curve distributors from minispares-making all previous types out of date--these are cheap to replace in comparison to poor petrol economy.

GEU930 25D 850/early 998



DODGY DISTRIBUTORS-Cheap china made products available frmo vendors

We’ve seen distributors with all different curves in the same batch. Base plates

that stick and alter the curves, sometimes jamming in full advance. When tested

we had difficulty getting them to run correctly when using a timing light and we

found that the rotor arm and dog at the bottom of shaft was often out of phase

putting the rotor arm in wrong position in relation to the point at where the spark

fired. We also found rotor arms that were hard up against the carbon bush in the

top of distributor cap causing the cap to burn away in middle.

Having tried and tested countless suppliers of imported and British made

distributors we had all ours individually built and tested to prevent costly engine

failures and breakdowns for the following reason - those suppliers were unable

to advise what curves were in them - we rarely found them the same in any

batch! Every part, even so-called ‘Mini Spares branded parts’ are being copied

for financial gain as Minis climb in popularity and value. Unscrupulous

companies can get parts made cheaply overseas, but they lack the technical

knowledge and precision required to make them correctly
