This morning I was visiting Jeroen Rothman in Holland. He is extremely knowledgeable on classics, especially Dolly's (he works as a mechanic at this place (http://www.thegallerybrummen.nl/en/welcome/ ) : he has several Dolomites, one of which is a daily driver averaging 25000 miles/year running on LPG.

He wil shortly install one of these distributors ( http://www.123ignition.nl/id/22.html ) on his daily driver : it's not ready to fit onto a Dolly, but he's having an adaptor developped for it. I was suitably impressed and asked him to make 2 of them. Once they're ready I will install this electronic distributor.

I will report on it in the future: if it is a serious improvement, additional adaptors can be made for those interested.

Benoit

Excellent Benoit. Please keep me up to date one that one as I'm very eager to get the 123ignition into my daily driver Sprint but do not want to kill one of the rare original distributors for that.

Hello, they will be ready this week. I've tested the prototype for 15.000km and it works fine. I have used/am using a red bosch coil 1.4 Ohm and no ballast resistor. An 123 can switch coils till 1.0 Ohm so megaspark and no blown electronics.

The adapter is a tight fit. You must heat the aluminium adapter with a paintstripper and than you can slide the distributor in it. After cooling down it is clamped. You can use locktite but than you cannot reuse the adaptor. I did not locktite it and it is still on its original place, no loss of timing. There is also a bush to accept the gear to the 123 distributor. You must drill the hole yourself for the securing pin.

You do not need the sprint adapterplate. It is mounted 1850-wise and the sliding holes have the original lenght so adjusting is easy.

Let me know who wants one. Costs 37 pounds

Hi jeroensprint,

Sorry to come late to this discussion but I would like to fit a 123ignition distributor to my sprint powered TR7 and understand that you have an adaptor kit for sale. Do you still have any and what model is the 123 distributor that fits?

Thanks in advance,
Allen Forster

Can I just clarify, with one of these adaptors, a 123 distributor will fit a Sprint engine ? (and which distributor/cap/leads ?)

Hello, the gb-4-rv does fit. The kit incudes also a bush to accept the original drive gear.
I have sold every kit but have some new ones made soon.

Yes, I do know jeroensprint very well and am also very sure he has some left but not for sale. The production did stop years ago. Mahesh on here is planning to make some reproductions of those adapters.
