Among many relatively minor alterations, the original engine was replaced with one built with a 24445 block which could quite possibly have come from a TD. The engine number appears to have been obliterated.
My problem is that I have invariably set the points to 11 thou and the plugs to 21 thou as per the TC instruction manual. However I have found that the points seem to need cleaning and adjusting every 1000 miles, and only last about 3000 miles before they become so severely pitted that they required replacement. I am wondering whether the distributor is from a TD type engine and if so whether it would be fitted with have a High-Lift cam. If so, should the points be set to 15 thou and plugs to 25 thou?
Can anyone tell me HOW to discover firstly whether the distributor is a TD type and secondly whether it has a High-Lift cam fitted.
Kind regards, Bill Ritson.
