Absolutely magic, made me laugh, "you're better than a Haynes Manual".

Melle, you certainly are.

I've measured 0.85 and 1.0mm on 7 dizzies. Does this mean that on some a 0.15mm shim has disappeared? I'll investigate this further when time allows! There is no connection between the part number and the end float.



0 231 170 031 = I assume this is off a 1.7LC Can anyone confirm this engine uses this part number?
0 231 170 179 = 1.7HC
0 231 170 183 = 1.5HC

I'll measure the max advance some time later. I also know of distributors with different numbers (for example 0 231 146 092, 0 231 170 066) but I don't have any of those so can't measure them. Any info appreciated.
