MG MGF Technical - HT Leads again....
|Problems starting the F again after just 1 year replacing the leads with the standard f type.|
I suspect they need replacing again but I will try a different manufacturer. Can anyone suggest a superior set and a supplier?
kind thanks in advance,
|magnecor make good leads. ive had them on my 220 turbo for the past 2 years no problems.|
|Magnecor are recognised as a good type, as already mentioned by Drew. Check the spark plugs and gaps (set to minimum gap of 0.8mm). Check also distbutor cap if yours is not a VVC. My VVC is running well on its original leads from 96.|
|Another endorsement for Magnecor Bryan - I've gone through several sets of standard HT leads on my VVC over the years, but so far the Magnecor ones are doing fine.|
|Another vote for magnecor leads - get the blue (8mm) leads as these perform very well, and fit reasonably well through the standard rubber cable guides in the cam-cover :o)|
Also agree with Bruce - check the condition of the spark plugs - and their gaps, and change the dizzy cap and rotor if you've got a 1.8i and they're still original.
|i have the Mags as well, reassuringly expensive, oops i sound like a lager add, got mine from B&Gammon's 8mm high performance 1.8i item code bgf 752 £49.95. vvc bgf 753 £54.95 tele no 01462 490049 Dave T6 DCM.|
|Same here, Got mine from Mike Satur... |
Just remember VVC leads are different to MPi leads!
|Same here, got a red Magnecore 8.5mm from B&G. I also had starting problems, which was rectified by 'new plugs / new coolant sensor / and HT leads'. I don't know which one exactly solved the problem, but have been problem free for last 2 years.|
Never missed a single beat since.
|Cheers everyone, mags is it then.|
I'll give Mike a call.
