Is it a damped/bonded pulley? I’m pretty sure the DET ones are so it should follow the ET ones are as well.
Had mine off the ET last week and it is bonded.

Originals are readily available, it just depends whether you’re prepared to pay £100+ for one? RockAuto have them in stock and ready to dispatch.

That's why I wondered what led to the ignition control being considered faulty. As you say a failing CAS can give many intermittent symptoms which can lead to wrong conclusions. I have run these engines for over 30 years and never heard of an ignition control fault, that doesn't mean it doesn't happ...

New units are easy to fit to a standard loom, only held by two little screws and just plugs out. That`s assuming you can find a working one :lol: As I posted earlier, new ones are available from Rock Auto. As you say Mark,I think you'd be very lucky to find a working second hand one. I am wondering...

Another bit that was done over winter/spring was the refurbishment of the veneer on the dasboard. It was delaminating and bits had chipped off, IMG_20181030_151912[1].jpg IMG_20181030_151339[1].jpg The original was quite a light walnut but it had faded a lot, I like the look of a darker wood so choo...

Reliant Parts World had the complete module several years ago for £25, dont know if the have any left. R Part no. 94456. Maybe worth giving them a ring. ROCKAUTO have complete modules in stock, at a price :shock: . SMP LX878 or WVE/AIRTEX/WELLS 6H1199 are the correct orientation I think. I can only ...

The distributor connector cable is longer than the S12/200SX Nissan cable part no. 22173, which appears to be no longer available. The two I got were Standard Motor Products part no. S670, which I extended by 25cm. These are also hard to find and they have now gone very expensive from the US or Aust...

Haven't updated since last March. Used the car over the summer and went to some shows;- Chommondeley, Tatton Park, Bodewyddan and Stonyhurst.
