I know you can buy them from RS components at about £8 for two.
I can hopefully find the number when I go to collect mine tonight.
I'll update when I get me hands on them.

SS1 1800 Ti No Sparks

I'll be interested in what's wrong with it. Going to refit the Darlington resistor assembly on mine tomorrow and it should run as all the symptoms point to that.

SS1 1800 Ti No Sparks

I've had fun with my non starting Ti and have found that I had a duff Darlington transistor. (I replaced it but that was duff so waiting for a new one). How handy are you with a multimeter / spanners ? There are some very simple checks that you can do to narrow it down. I would check the following f...

Ss1 ti not starting.

Hi Manny thanks for your kind offer. I have been down and followed the diagnosis for the cam angle sensor that Phil posted and am getting the correct voltages as I rotate the dizzy both from the injector side and the firing side so the cas unit appears to be working correctly. Looking at the coil an...

Ss1 ti not starting.

I've got the engine set at TDC with the dizzy out and turning the rotor arm.
Is there anyone close to Tamworth with a Ti that I could take the dizzy to and try it on there car ?
Or could i post it to someone to get it checked ?

Thanks

Ss1 ti not starting.

I can hear the fuel injectors firing as I turn the dizzy ( not in the engine ) the fuel pump definitely pumps fuel. I don't have a spark. It's like the signal to fire is missing. I had nothing at the coil previously but since I changed the power resistor I've now got something. Does the cas unit hav...

SS1 diff mount help

The rear diff rubber mounts were off a rover p6 from memory. If you have the old Bush get the number off it and Google it. They aren't easy to get hold of and were about £50 each. They occasionally pop up on eBay.
