Hi Guys,

 

I've gone and lost the advance springs from my Bosch 308 distributor. Now I have access to a 253 version. I know they have different degrees of advance etc. So I imagine the weights are different, but could I use the springs from the 253 dizzy? I was hoping they would be interchangeable and not unique to each type with different spring rates.

 

cheers.

Talking about Bosch. The weights are the same for 6 & 8 cyl.

It is the advance springs that are different.

Have you still got my email address? Send me your home address and I will post it over.

I will be expecting insider info on places to see on the North Island when we get there though.  :)
