L10_STC1856 – Powerspark STC Relocation Kit with Ignition Module for 3 pin and 2 pin V8 Distributors

Just £29.95

This one used to be a hugely expensive fix… not anymore!

A quality solution for moving your ignition module away from any heat source.
Comes complete with the ignition module, fixing plate and a wiring harness to allow you to relocate your ignition module.

The fixing plate is the same as the STC1856 relocation plate or ERR5210 and can be mounted behind the ignition coil as in some models of Land Rover Discovery etc.. or simply mount anywhere away from a heat source or that can typically cause issues with the 2 pin or 3 pin ignition modules.

Ideal for anyone suffering with failing modules where heat or vibration are suspected.
Suitable for all 3 pin applications, however if your vehicle needs a 3 pin then you will need an additional 2 to 3 Pin Short Linking Lead.

This week at Powerspark we are happy to announce three new products from Lifeline.

The Pocket range of portable batteries are, as you can probably guess from the name, pocket sized portable power packs. With modern Li-Po technology, these little things are leagues ahead of previous generations of portable battery pack.

With the USB to USB2 and Apple Lightning cable, the Lifeline Pocket can charge any USB2 or Lightning device straight out of the box. With the right cable, it can charge any device that accepts a standard USB plug.

We love the finish of these products, they feel great quality, they’re sturdy and robust yet they really are pocket sized – even the largest of the Lifeline Pocket range is no bigger than the latest iPhone.

If you are always scrabbling around for a phone charger, or find your vaporiser battery flashing when you’re miles away from home, the Lifeline Pocket range will be perfect for you!

LLA3 - Lifeline Ampstore Charger.jpg

Battery storage and charging experts Lifeline have launched two new emergency battery chargers, which are now on shelves and available to order at Powerspark Ignition.

LLA3 - Lifeline Ampstore

The Lifeline Ampstore and Ampstore PLUS are superb handheld jump starters for classic and modern cars. Featuring advanced battery technology,  both units are capable of jump starting a staggering number of cars considering they are small enough to keep in a glovebox.

The Ampstore comes in at just 17cm x 9cm wide x 3cm deep, meaning it takes up next to no space in your glovebox. Even the larger Ampstore PLUS is only 23cm long and just fractionally wider and deeper than the standard Ampstore.

Featuring rugged design and bright yellow colouring (making it hard to lose), these two chargers really are essential purchases for the avid motoring enthusiast.

Lifeline say that the Ampstore is capable of jump starting 20 cars from a single charge, whilst the Ampstore PLUS can manage an impressive 40 cars!

Both devices can retain their charge for 6 to 12 months, making them perfect for keeping in your car or in the garage in case of emergencies. What’s more, both devices can charge mobile electronics such as mobile phones, whilst the larger Ampstore PLUS is also able to charge laptops and notebooks.

Starting the car from flat… with a nifty new product from Powerspark

The car is not quite as pristine as you see in the picture and It needs a little Powerspark goodness. Last time out it was forced into service as a daily driver during a particularly wet and muddy December. It’s since been left parked in its the garage for a more than a year. So, it’s grubby, has a flat battery and the MoT has expired. Nothing that can’t be sorted, but first thing is to get the engine running…

A quirk of this car is that its big dual Dellorto carburettor setup will dry out if left for any length of time, so it will take a lot of engine cranking before it will fire. Despite charging the battery for a good few hours, there wasn’t enough power to crank the engine fast or long enough to get it started. That’s just not going to happen with this old battery! Powerspark to the rescue with the new Lifeline Ampstore Plus Portable Emergency Jump Starter.

LLA21 - Lifeline Ampstore Plus

 

The Lifeline Ampstore Plus Portable Emergency Jump Starter is a rechargeable Lithium-Polymer battery pack small enough fit in you pocket, yet powerful enough for several jumpstarts. But could it possibly start the reluctant VW? This will surely be a test…

Now, with dual Dellorto carburettors it can take a minute or more of cranking to prime the carbs from dry. Oh, and just to make things interesting, while the battery had been on charge, I swapped the 009 distributor for an SVDA, and I’m just hoping that the HT leads are in the right places…

I connected the jump start unit to the Ampstore Plus, then the heavy duty clips to the battery we’re ready to go. The instructions state that you mustn’t crank for more than 3 seconds. If the engine does’t start, wait 30 seconds before trying again.

When this car is used regularly, the engine always starts first go, but with those big carbs needing priming, the routine is crank 3 seconds, wait 30 seconds, crank 3 seconds, wait 30 seconds, until it fires. Will the tiny Ampstore Plus be up to it?

It cranks fast with the Jump Starter connected and sure enough, after maybe six or seven attempts, the engine spluttered into life. I’m impressed! It’s cold and dark outside, so to try out more of its features, I set about using the built-in torch to help check the tyre pressures on the daily driver before heading back into the warm to charge my phone from one of the Ampstore Plus’s two USB ports. Checking the charge indicator showed it still had plenty of power left.

The troublesome VW hadn’t made a dent in the Ampstore Plus‘s power.

What a fantastic bit of kit!

Classic car electronic specialists Powerspark Ignition have developed a new distributor suitable for the Austin 7 and Big 7. The Powerspark D31 Electronic Distributor is a direct replacement for the original DK4A Distributor, which has been out of production and unavailable for more than 50 years.

The original DK4A Distributor was fitted to Austin 7 and Big 7 cars from 1934 to 1939, meaning owners of these cars can now buy an off the shelf electronic ignition system complete with the entire distributor. It is available as both positive and negative earth.

Featuring a top entry cap and screw in acorn connections, the new distributor comes with an up to date electronic ignition kit to improve the reliability and consistency of the spark. The D31 Distributor also comes with a CA31 Distributor Cap, which can be purchased separately for those customers not wising to upgrade the full distributor housing.

Powerspark have been developing out of production distributors for the last six years, and can provide electronic ignition systems for all manner of classic cars.

The new model joins Powerspark’s extensive range of electronic distributors and ignition kits.
