Can anyone point me in the direction of somewhere I can get points and condensers for my Electra?
I just posted this request in light twins as well
If you will provide the part numbers for the parts you are looking for, I willcheck all my local sources.
Points and condensers are available for the Electra from the NOC shop - click on the link above and follow the links to Lightweight twins and electrical to find them. Frankly I spent years struggling to accurately set and maintain my Navigator and Jubilee ignition timing using the identical original points and mechanical advance / retard system . In the end I converted my Navigator to 12v electrics and the excellent Pazon electronic ignition. Not only did it make it incredibly quick and easy to set the ignition timing accurately statically and with a strobe but it has transformed the engine's performance. It starts instantly, ticks over without hesitation and accelerates and revs out smoothly and more powerfully and will reach the top speed achieved in contemporary road tests (on a private road of course!). It also runs cooler with less vibration, is more reliable, maintenance free and not too expensive. I can't recommend it more strongly.
Good luck and let us know how it goes. Nick
