Q My car is a 1978 Mk2 Escort with points and condenser ignition. Can you tell me where I can get a contactless ignition system from? Paul King Email
A You could either find a XR2 Mk1 distributor and rob the bits from that, or fit an aftermarket kit, such as Aldon’s Ignitor, H&H Ignition Solutions’ module, and Lumenition’s Optronic or Magentronic systems. They’re all dead easy to fit and the H&H, Ignitor and Optronic all hide under the distributor cap, so you can’t tell they’ve been fitted. We covered fitting H&H’s kit in the December 2015 issue, available from our online Back Issues store.
