I purchased this one from eBay a few months ago, simple to install and seems to work! Cant tell you about the longevity of it yet but feedback seems good and reviews on different car forums is positive.

Been using an Accuspark electronic distributor for years. Recently had to replace it, but only because one of the wires inside was knocked about when I refitted the distributor cap and it was too short to fix easily!

You might need to change the coil to one that is suitable for electronic distributor.

I purchased an accuspark module from eBay, the spark is much better than my old points.
Had to do some basic checks on my existing coil to make sure it was compatible but that was simply measuring of resistances with a multimeter.
Fitting was very easy, good clear instructions plus plenty of help online to.
Happy days

Lumenition Magnetronic for me. The first lasted 100000 miles. I will remember to change it regularly-every 17 years.
