I pulled out of Helmsley at the last minute due to my distributor advance mechanism failing (according to the AA) I'm not too sure having had it in a few bits Sunday night. However its un-settled me. Can anyone advise me on which distributors fit my Rover V8 P6 engine, the oil gear is on the end of the shaft. I have had the engine for 15 years and am now finding it tricky to get caps and points etc so might like a more modern unit. WHAT CAN I REPLACE IT WITH EASILY is my question.
Also what plug leads do I buy?
Thanks Richard -
RPI Engineering are the people to speak to. Visit their website http://www.v8engines.com/ or ring them on 01603 891209. You'll need Engine number and they should be able to tell you exactly what bits you need and even quote you a price for them. When you know what you need, you can shop around for a decent price

It was the vacuum advance module, the rubber diaphragm inside was split so I replaced the whole unit. Still no better so I mopped up the tears and stared at it for 5 minutes. The pipe that connects it to the carb was fine but the small rubber elbows on BOTH ends were split. I fabricated a new pipe and all was well.
A week before (and 24 hours before Helmsley) the AA man had narrowed it down to the distributor but said he had spent enough time in my garage and if the vehicle had been out and about would request a recovery to anywhere I wanted.
A happy ending.
Thanks for asking
