Lucas or Powerspark Dizzy?

Postby Richb77 » Mon 25 Jun 2012 3:32 pm

Gents.

I am on the hunt again....

I am planning an immanent purchase (sad when i have to plan purchases!) of a new dizzy.

Simonbbc has both Lucas and Powerspark 35DLM8 dizzy's for my RRC 3.9efi.

Has anyone got any experience with the powerspark ones?

I hear good things about the electronic conversion kits but nothing about the dizzy assemblies.

Any advice welcome as if in doubt i will probably stick with the Lucas one.

One of the solutions could be to just ditch the dizzy at all :) - to take the megasquirt way - ask Bowie as he seems to know much about it. Personnally I also am thinking about this way as I am fed up with all this dizzy and coil electric disadvantages + also a big bonus - waterproofing !

For the sake of <£30 difference at the moment I'd probably grab a Lucas one. Speak to Simon on the phone and he can tell you what the differences are, the powerspark rotor arms are very good but I don't know about the dizzys.

If the Lucas dizzy is a Brazilian product I would avoid it.

I have had no trouble at all in two years with the 123 dizzy on my 3.5 v8, bags of power and never needs touching.
