I have one that has an injured foot.  It works just fine and the dimensions

of the missing foot could easily be extrapolated from the others.  Let's see

if a more "whole" one shows up, but the offer stands.

Does anyone have a good shutter wheel they can temporarily part with so that a

CAD model can be drawn up?  The file can be sent to anyone and a 3D printed

part can be made easy enough.

If you know what part of the Lumenition is bad, Merlin Motorsport out of

the UK has the individual Lumenition pieces for sale.  Also, they have the

complete system for less than Rimmers.  https://www.merlinmotorsport.co.uk/

No, the Lumenition chopper wheel cannot be used with the Crane ignition.B

They work on opposite principles.B  In the Lumenition, the coil is triggered

when a blade on the chopper wheel interrupts the light beam.B  In the Crane

unit, the coil is triggered when a gap in the shutter wheel allows the light

beam to connect with the receptor.B

Just talked to FAST concerning the shutter wheel for the Lucas V8 distributor.

They do not have a kit with that shutter wheel and will not provide a kit for

the Lucas V8 distributor.

I recall hearing that Crane discontinued the shutter wheel kit for the TR8

distributor. I hope I'm wrong because the Crane setup is more reliable and

less expensive than the Lumenition.B

Rimmers still carries the Lumenition system and the Fast (Crane) X700 I

believe will work and is also is light based.

The Lumenition is quite easy to fault with a voltmeter , do you have their

instructions?

I have a copy on My Drive if this link works see bottom of page 2 onwards.
