Looks like it!

I once bought a cheap intermotor brand dizzy cap for my BX and lasted me 6K miles. Cost me £9. Then got a Ducellier cap and rotor set for £12 lasted me a lot longer! that long I have no idea how long it lasted! :D

Hi At 18 years old I think it's fair to say that it's time it went.(and the rotor arm.) Should make a difference.
Cheers.

Dont worry Tim its just a spare to sit in the boot! Saying that though i'm sure she's more than capable of fitting it, she did do an engineering apprenticeship!
