Historic class issues

Agree with cannonball's and Phil's posts above in relation to the VED point.

Ignition cut out

Wasn't there also a problem where some people found it fouled the vacuum advance, preventing full movement?

Now what have I done!

Thanks Roger....if it has a Eureka wire where is it and do they fail?
