HT Leads

Post by unknownmale » Wed Jan 31, 2018 5:02 pm

The last 3 sets of HT leads i've bought have had some issue with them, but all of them send me a king lead which is far too short. I have to keep sending them back and buying cheap ones from my uncles parts place.

Ordered a set of BBT from GSF, they had the wrong dizzy connectors and the king lead was too short, then another set from ECP (Again BBT) the king lead too short. and a set of beru leads, again the king lead too short.

It's strange as there is no A1 chassis car i'm aware of where the lead would have a hope in hell of reaching.

On another note, anyone local have a king lead? Swap you 3 that are too short and a set with the wrong ends! :x

I had the same issues ordering from ECP, the short king lead would suggest 16v, but they're still listed for 8v.

I managed to get the correct set for my DX engine from GSF - part number 926VG0180

They are the correct lengths, and for a dizzy cap with the pin type terminals.
