Can I just point out that the British Standard raspberry was a development of the Scottish raspberry nicked after unification, under James first, and sixth of Scotland. It lost its Royal Appointment with Charles first's head and was used extensively to suppress the Irish thereafter. A policy begun by Cromwell. The adoption by the Navy slowly saw Britain reach global dominance, after dealing with Napoleon, who was only ever able to produce a squeaking noise or a farty under arm burst - see historical portraits where he stands in readiness, hand in coat, thus reducing him to forever follow a policy of internal line aggressiveness. The modern era saw the Germans suffer two defeats to the British raspberry in a race to develop the ultimate technically advanced raspberry. Fitting jet assistance ultimately failed the Nazi war machine. In fact much of that effort was waisted, as nature produced Spike Milligan. He wealded the British, and other tactical raspberries, the Punjabi therb being particularly nasty, to a pitch where no one was safe. But it was Milligan that achieved the British Standard raspberry. While time and politics enmesh it in Euoropean rules, I feel sure it will be heard very shortly, if the Greek crisis is not sorted out. I just hope our Foreign Secretary has been well coached.

Then I would say its the first one as you suggested. Make sure its not a lighting coil though as they look pretty similar.

ps, It makes a change to have Real Peel issues discussed on the forum! Keep it up Jamie.

In a cafe window near Waterloo station:

Sorry about reflections, no polarising filter on me.

Piatti is Italian for cymbals, something I know being a drummer. It is also Italian for plates, but I can assure you that they don't sound as good as cymbals and keep breaking

Microcar Events / Micronorth

I see Micronorth attracted over 50 cars. A great effort and once again putting pressure on the UK support of events. Unless there is a remarkable concentration of cars in the area of that event, many will have made a long trip to attend the event. The sort of long trip that we do not have to make in the UK. Micronorth is on a par with Bath, our second rank rally from feedback I receive. I make only the observation and congratulate the greater continent of America for its enthusiasm.

Well it's an idea I hadn't thought of ! Hmmm thanks

Well I did say it might sound a bit silly. ;D

I only used it when I needed to replace a centre console in a car with dark blue trim and none could be found, it was sort of an emergency, s**t or bust type bodge but it did work and the paint stayed on. I appreciate it might be a harder job on a bit of piping.

Dye would be hard to get onto the piping itself without leaching onto the main seat material. And I don't know how well a dye would work on vinyl.

It dose have a external coil in the car, so it dose have a external HT lead from the coil to the spark plug. ;)

Hi Jamie.  I'm no expert on Peels but does your car have another seperate ignition coil outside of the flywheel or does the HT [sparkplug] lead come straight out of the engine and onto the plug?

Looking at the coils you show, the first one looks like the type that feeds an outside coil , the second is a flywheel magneto coil that feeds the spark plug direct.
Dont know if this helps?
