Ill have to take the dizzy out then just to make 100% sure i get the right one before i buy it off ebay.
It comes with new lucas coil and a red rotor arm so fingers crossed it wil improve this trubblesome misfire we have.

Re: triple carb rebuild

They look fantastic! Great job that man!
What would this cost me of i were to send my tripple SU's and let you rebuild them?
