I haven't got any first-hand experience, but if it helps, Aldon were recommended to you in the replies to your earlier question.

I bought one from, www.accuspark.co.uk and I'm very pleased with it and their help.
It's very easy to fit and simply replaces the points and condenser.
Should you get one and need any tips in fitting it, please ask.
Regards,
Steve.
:goodluck:

Mine is a Bestek setup

..you get a distributor, module and also a Cosworth coil pack, does away with the ballast resistor and converts it to 12V continuous feed. Standard, fast road, race and rally setups available. Rally for me :drive:

I've got an Aldon in mine and it works a treat. Fit and forget as they say. I know Nick has one too and so did someone else but can't remember who.
I bought an accuspark kit first but it refused to work. Might be that I just had a faulty one rather than the general quality of them is poor though as I know a lot of other people use accuspark without issue

Oh that reminds me, I had one of those too. Never had any problems with it although I have heard it gives a weak spark. If true, in practice, it wasn't noticable.
