MG Midget and Sprite Technical - distributor cap

Hi, anyone any experience of Chinese caps from Moss? They dont look very good especially centre brush but maybe someone has tried one?

we have a lot of trouble in the UK with rotors

the chap that does good rotors also does dissy caps too -

See if you can get a cap and red rotor from Jeff at Advance Distributor. He sells top quality parts.
I presume you have a right hand drive, so consider a top entry cap. No cutting leads so it's a much better connection, and less "noise" if you have a radio

Phil. Rethink which side of the car may have the driver's equipage. Canadians drive on the right hand side of the road, just like us 'Mericans. Besides, the right hand drive vehicles benefit from the side entry cap, not the top fitting cap. Brain phart? We are all getting older.

Thanks Les,
Of course I meant a left hand drive can benefit from top entry caps, and I know that our northern brothers also drive on the correct side of the road.

I guess I've been studying and reading too much. At 57 yrs. old I'm just wrapping up my 1st semester in law school. Talk about brain damage, keeping up with kids is pretty tough. This weekend I'm going home to get my midget. Three months without a drive is killing me
