Hi Rob,

Mines a Powerspark not Sparkrite (must have been thinking of an early elecronic ignition a mate put on his 1275cc back in 1979).

Anyway there is loads of useful information on both positive and negative earth electronic ignitions including a very useful check list on this British site.
Hope it's of us

Remember the name Ed,

Sounded somewhat meatier than Sparkrite, like a piranha could start a tank or AC Cobra, rather than a little old Midget.

All the best Johnny

Change the radio console back to the original.
For some reason the P.O. put some radio console from other car which I did not like. I also changed the radio and relocate the gauges.

Actually more like, "What I attempted to do to my Midget this weekend"..... All set to replace speedo cable with a fresh one from Moss. Car on stands, shimmy under, remove 'layers of crud' from gearbox, work my hot dog sized fingers up into a space engineered for a spider monkey and pull the retaining nut\clip then disconnect from back of speedo and pull.....only to find that I ordered the wrong replacement cable...about 2 feet to short.....complete user error on my part, but not a complete waste of time, got the underside cleaned up, spotted source of oil leak and did good under car general visual inspection....maybe the 2nd replacement cable will be here in time for next weekend....
