Why not fit one of the rubber type coil and distributor covers? They’re a bit of a bugger to get on, but once fitted work very well.

Don't think I've come across one of them. Got an example? :)

I wouldn't bother spending all that money. You'll be better off getting AC Dodd to rebuild your current dizzy and fit an electronic ignition kit... if its an A+ engine you could buy a 65D type dizzy that will do the job and be about £40 second hand with the loom and coil.

I have fitted the 65D type dizzies to 2 998 A+ mini engines and both ran well, the car in my Avatar has had a second hand one fitted since we restored the car in 2010.

Sorry, the new dizzy would be going towards the 1380. 998 is currently in my car and is a lost cause for now

Sorry been away for a couple of days, thanks for the recommendation, looks like it would definitely be an improvement over the rubber glove so I'll have a look into it as well as the vaseline solution to try and improve it then
