What was the old setup like, if its any help the 1ltr novas run a resistive wire from the ignition to the coil, it always throws its head up when people fit injection engines, it gives a weak spark problem, wondering if that could be a culprit in your case?

removed the old xr loom and ballast resister ages ago, fitted a simplified supersport loom and removed the needless ballast etc to fit a bestek kit, ran faultlessly till i mullered the engine/box/shafts lol

fried a previous kit with 1.5ohm coil not realising i needed a 3 ohm one, accuspark now, would love luminition but way too expensive for me :(

You know where the jumble is if your running late don't you Will?


The school hall? If so, then yes, I've played football at South Hunsley a few times

Gears *seem* to be fine on the Peugeot, so I should be there for the jumble. If I'm not, it means the Peugeot's failed me.

Just need to get the cantis balanced and some air in the tyres now.
