Re: dizzy problems

If your talking about the efi dizzys they will fit but they wont work, they have no mech/vac advance as the efi computer does this.

Re: dizzy problems

Try a Pertronix Ignitor or a Crane XR-i.

Re: dizzy problems

nononono, DON'T buy any Sydney Speed Supplies ignition equipment.
Those procomp dizzys are not to be trusted. They are dodgy as.

Order the Crane XR-i from summitracing, will cost you $150 Aussie landed with express UPS. Thats the best way to go.
