DISTRIBUTOR

Post by Doug G »

Which should I get?

The engine is an 'A' series 998 cc circa 1973

Am considering replacing the distributor in my MiniMoke.

Found
45D4 LUCAS type distributor is fitted with the original points ignition system and comes with a vacuum advance unit.

The Lucas 45D4 distributor was fitted to these Mini models from 1974 to 1981:

Mini 850cc, Mini Van and Mini Pick up - Lucas number 41410, 41411, 41417, 41418
Mini 998cc manual and automatic - Lucas number 41419
Mini 850cc Saloon 1976 on - Lucas number 41767
Mini 1275GT, Mini 1275cc 1978 on - Lucas number 41768
Mini Van Pick up 1100cc 1981 - Lucas number 41793
Our range of brand new Mini Distributors 23D4, 25D4, 45D & 59D type distributors are manufactured using the original LUCAS tooling to the highest standards.

Electronic upgrade kits are available for your existing distributor, which allows for removal of the points system, giving better reliability and a more consistent spark.

Buy Lucas type 45D4D distributors from Mini Sport, the worlds premier online Mini store.

Alternatively I may buy a cap and a rotor and new leads.

Suggestion as to which distributor, I don't see much (which could be a VERY important detail) difference.

Anyone here installed the electronic version one?

If so, which electronic version for a 988 cc A series engine?

The distributors number ( the one that starts with 41) will be stamped on the body of the dizzy fitted to your moke.
At least can add up

Unfortunately the distributor that is in [was removed and two of us had a good look] the Mini Moke does not have any numbers stamped on or in it.

Nor is there any evidence that any numbers were ground off.

After much research, faffing about and consideration I have purchased a SKU# PSK-D10-98
59D4 Lucas Type Distributor with Electronic Ignition £71.00 from Mini Sport.


Looking forward to he first week of December.

I understand that it should be a fairly straight forward installation.

Stand by for an up date.

Anyone done this distributor swap over?

Make sure you have the correct coil to suit the electronic distributor.
Mini Sport will advise the correct one for you.

You wont regret never having to constantly clean and adjust points ever again either.
