Introducing the Gentleman’s Service

Posted: May 11, 2018 by goodshoutmedia in Reference

When you staff your company full of enthusiasts, there’s always something ‘car related’ to report. Today three staff managed a lunch break oil change on Joe’s ageing BMW wearing completely inappropriate footwear.

Powerspark Catalogue 2018

We are often asked ‘which electronic ignition kit do I need for my car’… Well, this guide should help.

Bosch distributors are usually found in Volkswagen, Porsche, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Saab, and Volvo vehicles, as well as other European manufacturers.

Bosch distributors are either 1 piece or 2 piece construction, and have Left Hand or Right Hand Points Sets.

The photo below shows which Electronic Ignition Kit (The K Number) you’ll need for your Bosch distributor.


Simple click on the links below to find the electronic ignition kit you need:

1 Piece, Left Hand Points > K9 for 4 Cylinder and K11 for 6 Cylinder

1 Piece, Right Hand Points > K6 for 4 Cylinder and K10 for 6 Cylinder

( and K10_18.65 for 6 Cylinder distributors with a bigger shaft )

2 Piece, Right Hand Points > K14 for 4 Cylinder and K16 for 6 Cylinder

The Rover V8 was fitted to a variety of vehicles in it’s lifetime, and we supply distributors to suit all applications of this mighty powerplant… But how do you know which distributor you need?

We split the Rover V8 into two eras, classed as ‘early’ and ‘late’. This is based on what sort of drive gear is used to drive the oil pump at the base of the distributor shaft.

< Early – Pre 1976 – Uses a Male Drive Gear to drive the oil pump.



< Late – Post 1976 – Uses a Female Drive Gear to drive the oil pump.




The problem with this classification system is it is not an exact science. Rover V8 engines are popular for transplants into other vehicles and kit cars, so it is not always easy to identify whether an engine is early or late.

If you aren’t sure, please give us a call… the engine can be identified by the engine number to determine which distributor you need.

We offer both Early and Late electronic distributors for ‘plug and play’ fitment. These can be bought with either our own ignition module or a genuine Lucas ignition module.

All four of these ELECTRONIC IGNITION distributors can be found here:

Our Product SKU D29 & R5 Early Rover V8 Distributor with Powerspark Ignition Module

Our Product SKU D29M11 & R5 Early Rover V8 Distributor with Genuine Lucas Ignition Module

Our Product SKU D2 & R5 Late Rover V8 Distributor with Powerspark Ignition Module

Our Product SKU D2M11 & R5 Late Rover V8 Distributor with Genuine Lucas Ignition Module

All of these cars are powered by the Rover V8 in different forms:

Customer Review – Land Rover Series 3

Posted: June 22, 2017 by goodshoutmedia in Reference

Don’t just take our word for it:

It stopped raining here in Cork after lunch so the new dizzy and coil fitted to my series 3 Land-rover replacing the very old and unreliable Ducelier originally fitted back in 1970! No problems at all and immediate improvement in starting and tickover. Gave it a 10 mile test run to town and back including some stop-start in Macroom town centre. Very pleased with results and thoroughly recommend your product. Feel free to quote me on that. Kind regards. Tony
