Calver has been under the hood of a lot of Minis in his time, and is happy
to share what he's learned with us. Find out what he has to say about
the various makes of electronic ignition with the following article:
the A-Series has such an efficient combustion chamber design, the standard
points set-up is perfectly capable of providing sufficient sparks for
effective combustion when new. And this is the problem. If maintenance
is overlooked, the results
are a loss in power and economy, poor starting performance, and general
poor running. To maximise spark potential an electronic ignition is essential."

Thing! Reg. $299.95, on sale for $269.95
