Elec­tronic ig­ni­tion

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.
