B81/8B2 Engine distributor required

Question

Hi

Ive recently bought an Alvis special (car ) and it has a B81/8B2 engine in it. The distributor is a cobbled up affair and it won't run right, does anyone know of a distributor , other than a military one , that will do the job. I've been told a DU8A will be the right one but can't locate one anywhere Any info would be much appreciated. 

Thanks 

Bill Haworth

Bill,

 

If you did not want to use screened AFV /  aircraft sparking plugs you could use a military distributor and take the ordinary  leads out of the distributor cap.  It may be that you want the engine to look completely like a civvy B81 which we would all understand.  The Dennis F8 fire appliance had a B80 or B81 engine.  (I don't know which) But it might have had a civvy type distributor, so the fire engine community may be able to help.

If you wanted best performance, reliability and efficiency, go electronic!  However, you might have originality and appearance issues.  There are several specialists in this area.  Jolly Engineering is often mentioned on this forum.

If you wanted to chat about the problem my mobile is 07528 263 926
