MG MGB GT V8 Factory Originals Technical - 35DE8 springs
|anybody know how to get hold of new springs for the centrifugal advance on my 35DE8 without having to buy a complete new distributor.|
All the main agants want to sell me a complete unit for £200-£300..... I only want 20p worth of springs
|Many years ago - 10 or more! - TriumphTune ( part of Moss Europe ) used to sell a set of advance springs to alter the curve of lucas distributors, if they still sell it that might give you what you need.|
You could also try Aldon, although probably best know for their octane booster they also supply retimed distributors.
Hope this helps.
|I know that Real Steel do an advance curve kit for about £7 for the Rover dizzy.|
|I bought the kit Pete mentions from Real Steel. It is intended for the Chevrolet small block. I used one of the gold springs (the most compliant) from the kit for the innitial advance and the original spring for the later part of the curve - I found none of the others in the kit suitable.|
|Does anybody have contact details for real steel (web site?)|
Aldon are like everybody else want to sell me a recon until for £250
|Real Steel don't have a website as far as I know. You can phone them on 01895 440505.|
