[ROVERNET - UK] Pertronix ignition on a SD1

Hi there,

This is a follow-up to a discussion I started about 6 months ago. I have
successfully installed a Pertronix ignition on to an Sd1 with federal
fuel injection. We had a discussion about it a while back and the
general thought was that it wouldn't work with the injection. 

I eventually found the problem to be the angle that I reinstalled the
distributor was not correct. After lining up the rotor with oil pump and
the distributor cap correctly, the VDP fired up with no problem. I still
have to clean the injectors and replace the fuel pressure regulator to
get to running on top form, but I can say now that Pertronix is
compatible with the federal fuel injection.

Hope this might help someone out there,

Best regards,


49 P3 Six light
67 2000TC
70 3500S
84 SD1 VDP
