Agree with you completely Peter. A good original set up (Distributor Doctor supplied mine) does not need regular adjusting, and anyway will continue working even when out of adjustment.

I have been using electronic ignition in MGBs since about 1980 when I bought a Mobelec Magnum. In recent years I changed to Powerspark a) so I could get rid of the finned grey box and b) because I thought it wouldn't last for ever.

Just in case I have a spare distributor with points already gapped stowed in the spare battery box. (The spare battery box had been panelled in.)
