There's a few good suggestions in the Tech Wiki on this. A whole page on it: http://datsun1200.com/modules/mediawi ... title=Electronic_Ignition

Initially I used a Jaycar HEI kit, mainly because when I bought the car it had a low ohm coil on the stock system, so the coil cooked and the car broke down. Now I've got the Ford EDIS setup on there. If I did it again I'd just use the wasted spark option on the Megasquirt.

(180B in Aus was a Bluebird elsewhere I think)

They look like the hub caps that were on the family 180B back in the 80s, I was a kid so my memory's sketchy.

HQ was the first coil spring rear end in a Holden. HK/T/G and prior were leaf spring rear ends.

How much torque can you put through the key on the front pulley? 12kW has got to be close-ish to the sum of all accessories (alternator, air-conditioning, water pump). 12kW is like 3 air conditioners.

If you drive the generator from a belt off the flywheel side you can choose to drive it any direction you want just by orientating the generator relative to the motor. Easy.

If the 120Y master cylinder is the same as the 1200 there's a purge nipple on the master cylinder you have to do first. Different to every other car I've worked on. That may have been the issue. One of my least favourite jobs.

My car projects are on hiatus with a new old house and a new baby so there's not much for me to post about not that I've ever been a big poster. It does seem like Facebook gets a lot more traffic. I guess many people are on it anyway. I do wish there were a few more projects to read about while I can't get to mine.

Going too big can give you trouble at idle. It gets to the point where you can't get a short enough squirt for idle fuel mix. How big is too big, I don't know. Depends on many things. Someone else may have experience with a set up like yours.

It might be slightly more fun than the Mondeo wagon I drive! The baby capsule fits better in the Mondeo though, I don't reckon the 1200 coupe has the mounting points or curtain air bags. From what I can see with my colleagues I should be thankful I've still got a toy car after starting a family.

That does look good. You'll need a little mirror to show everyone how beautiful your gearbox mount is
