My guess would be plug leads or, more possibly, the connections at each end (including the coil lead). Get yourself a test meter which will check resistance and measure the resistance in each lead.

The reason MG and Jaguar went away from SU carbies for US spec cars was that they are a mongrel to get emission levels down to the required level at idle. We have no problems in Oz (not yet anyway) b

The best way to check for wear in a distributor shaft, without taking it out (and this is indeed the best way) is to use a dwell meter to check the dwell angle. As you are checking note whether the d

Kevin, My advice was 8 Ohms per foot for any high tension leads. If they are copper (and you can forget having a radio if they are) they should give no resistance. The resistance is designed into th

Sounds very much like stem seals. Try another check. If you are stopped at traffic lights for a period does smoke come out as you accelerate away? If it does then this is further confirmation. Unfor
