my vacuum advance has died, and since it doesnt look very detachable from the dizzy I think im going to have to source another dizzy. Does anyone know if a v6 dizzy would fit if i swaped the timing cams over? I was hoping to find one in a scrapyard...

I would suggest a wanted add for a dizzy in good condition would be your best bet. Try a add in the adverts section on here and also the SOC web page.

One is yours for a fiver plus post from Glasgow.
