Ignition System Wants

Cleaned up the garage and found some parts you want to sell? Or are you looking for that one part? You can advertise or request just about anything that has to do with the Volvo 480 in here: brochures, towing-hooks, antenna's, etc etc...

Ignition System Wants

Post by yorkievolvo » Tue Sep 10, 2019 4:25 pm

These bits have been requested by the garage fixing my 480 turbo auto, B18FT engine with Bosch EZ210K electronic ignition:
full set of ignition leads (inc from coil to distributor),
ignition coil,
distributor cap,
flywheel sensor.
Please, can anybody supply some, or all?

All readily available. I like Mr Auto but plenty of other places will keep them in stock.

If it were me I'd be going for Bougicord leads and Valeo everything else. NGK also make good flywheel sensors, but have a slightly different trade name. Other good makes are available, avoid crappy rubbish you haven't heard of.‎

Mr retroleads for HT leads!

Although I’m slightly concerned they’re simply throwing everything at it rather than actual troubleshooting....

ditto

I'd change one thing at a time, then work thorough what was changed that made the difference :o

but to be fair if they start working they will want ALL the parts ready to swap over?
