Check that the condensor is scewed down tight to the distributor base plate. If it is loose it will not be earthing properly and may be the cause of the miss that you are experiencing. Regards G.T.

GOB,
This will sound stupid but what the hell is an extended rotor? will it fit in my dizzy? And why lpg1, the rig is petrol only, is the extended rotor related to converted vehicles, sorry for ignorance. The rotor does have a slidey (technical I know) bit on it, should i drop some lube on it, and if so what do you use in the dizzy for lube, graphite?
Cheers,
Hano.

goodday hano
the rotor is extended about half a bees thingy but it cuts down the air gap the spark has to jump across
when i had my gq it didnt matter gas or petrol mongrel kept missing finally somebody told me about this rotor put 1 in it never missed a beat until i traded it on the gu
lpg1 because i know they have them or another place in blackburn in melb but cant remember the name and they are a bit dearer
i replaced the condensor a couple of times had it tuned twice and changed plugs 3 times in 1 trip and it still backfired and missed all the way from the alice to melb

depending on the make, some stock rotors have a screw holding the plate on, and you can elongate the hole slightly to reduce the gap, ideally the spark plug gap should be the biggest gap in the whole circuit.

Hi Bradley,
Mine has a slide that must rely on centrifical force to push it out, but its as stiff as a honeymooners, do you know what sort of lube if any you can use in this situation (and I mean in the distributor).

cheers,

Hano.

hano , the slide is supposed to slide out so as not to over rev the motor.( looses contact no spark) Performance ignition service @ nunawawading vic sells the rotor , and can be contacted on 0398723644 regards stephenjNQ.
