Austin 7 Ignition Set Up

Austin 7 expert Terry Griffin shares his tips for a reliable ignition set up.

"For a totally reliable condenser on any points distributor use a Swiftune competition condenser. The Bosch 009 distributors he sources from Vewee parts. If you prefer a Lucas distributor Accuspark 23D (used on Mini Cooper/ Ford Twincam) are OK, used with a reversed dynamo housing on a A7"

Terry kindly share some examples of successful set ups below.
