I have a few questions about some of the electrical
components on spridgets:
1) What is the expected lifetime of a Lucas distributor? In
the Vizard book he mentions that the bearings wear out
quickly. Any experience with modifications?
2) If one wanted to replace a generator with an alternator,
is the 72-74 midget setup a good option? I have noticed that there
has been some discussion of alternators from other cars being adapted.
3) Is the stock starting motor adequate for a 9.5:1 CR engine?
I have seen other starting motors adapted for spridgets.
