Great minds think alike Ash
Ash - have you got your megajolt unit - I'm can't decide whether to buy a unit or a kit - I like a challenge so building the kit is quite appealing but I'm slightly concerned about the surface mount bits. I've built a few complicated kits before but they were all thru-hole components.
Your probably aware of this, but just as a heads up to anyone else following this thread, you cannot simply remove the distributor and plug the hole. The end of the distributor drive shaft has a hex cut in the end that engages with the oil pump drive - glad I found out about that one before I tried starting it!
