XPAG Distributor

Post by timandgerda » Sun Jul 07, 2019 10:41 am

The distributor I have for my TC XPAG engine is incorrect - it has vacuum advance, and I don't know its condition. I want to fit either an original type (not managed to find one yet) or failing that may go for an electronic look alike. Any advice would be welcome - I am UK based. Thanks. Tim.

How "correct" do you wish to be? There are certainly TC distributors floating about (look on eBay), and there are many visually-exact distributors for other cars with a correct date code, that can be adjusted to fit.

A Pertronix can be fitted to a worn distributor, but a rebuilt one is obviously better. If you need help finding a "proper" distributor, let me know.

Thanks Norman/Tom. I think I have found a distributor - it will need a rebuild but hopefully will be ok. The latest problem is the new pushrods (standard size) are too long now the head is down to near maximum skimming!
