Hi All

I ordered some ignition parts from Feked which I set about fitting today. Ignition coil no problem, condenser no problem but when I installed the points they do not fit properly. The plastic body of the top contact hits the screw of that holds the bottom contact in place. Comparing it to the points that were there the body of the new part is slightly longer and causing the problem. Has anyone come across this before.

Many thanks in advance for any replies

Thanks for that Sunny

I suppose I took it for granted they would fit. After doing a bit of investigating I think I have found the right ones. This is all a learning process for me and I will need to be a little more diligent in the future.

 

Many thanks and regards
