This is an entire points-less Distributor for your 4 cylinder Austin Healey Sprite or MG Midget.  The electronic ignition upgrade is a great reliability add-on for your Bugeye. This requires push-on (not side cap) wires which is why we include them in our kit. We usually use black or dark blue wires so it will have a period correct look.

Please specify if you have a positive or negative ground car in the drop down menu when you order. Make sure you order the correct polarity, you need a negative Pertronix for negative ground cars and positive ground if you have a positive ground car.

RESTORER's TIP:

Nothing is more frustrating when tuning an older British sportscar than chasing multiple issues. You might think your carbs need adjustment but perhaps your distributor is worn and the dwell is wandering all over the map. When you put in one of these new distributors, you can usually eliminate ignition issues and focus on tuning your car correctly. New bushings, new premium rotor and new wires are all built in to this upgrade. This is where we usually start with the cars we prepare, for the best results.

NOTE FOR RIGHT-HAND DRIVE BUGEYE OWNERS:

The top-load cap on this distributor will not work on account of clearance issues with the steering shaft. The side entry cap we sell will work on this distributor. Please contact us before purchasing if you have a Right-hand drive Bugeye so we can make sure you get the parts you need!
