Came across this, not heard any mention of it before though, is this something that needs to be done?

Ahhhhhh so.... Would that explain the rough running I have? It's either idle or flat-out? 

I've googled gt dizzys with no luck, any idea what they were?

Hi, The G.T Distributor is Part No: 40927.

Timing is slightly different on the GT and should be set at 10 degrees B.T.D.C

Are you sure it's not a carb problem? have you checked the jets are the right size as these 28/36 carbs were used on a lot of different cars -Escort 1300gt to Hillman Imp's

Also worth checking the advance is working on the distributor.

Hope this helps.

That's amazing thanks so much!

 

It came off a 1500 so just assumed it was right and I can't find any info on the jet sizes for a 1500? Only for standard gt carbs. 

It runs, BOY doesn't it run! Its bloody quick, but it's idle or flat out lol! It doesn't like cruising at 30 that's for sure,

Standard G.T jet sizes:

Main jets;m140 and 155

air correction jets  230 and 180

slow running jets  50 and 70

slow air jets 200 and 70 

Although its not a GT engine(difference in cam and head it should run O.K on these sizes.

See how much play is in the main spindle as well

I've searched for that part number but can't seem to find much listed about it. I've seen ignitioncarparts.co.uk list a 40927a and 40927b but just says: 'Distributor New Lucas distributors assembled in England by Ultra Sparks' 

No other info about it? 

Any suggestions on where to buy?

Look for a genuine original one. Most of the new ones are from China and are rubbish

I'm guessin ebay then? Can't seem to find any parts shops selling them?
