Powerspark Lucas 35D V8 Electronic Distributor for Late Rover V8 with Genuine Lucas Ignition Module
D2 - Powerspark Lucas 35D V8 Electronic Distributor for Late Rover V8 with Genuine Lucas Ignition Module
This Powerspark Distributor is a direct replacement for the Lucas 35D or 35DLM8 V8 Distributor.
The Lucas 35D V8 was used for many years in vehicles that used the Rover V8 engine. Your Rover V8 engine is either classed as early or late, which dictates which drive gear the distributor utilises:
Pre 1976 Rover V8 engines use a male drive gear / Post 1976 Rover V8 engines use a female drive gear
As many engines have been swapped or have been converted to the later front cover, it is not always easy to identify whether a Rover V8 is early or late. This can be done from the engine number, so if you aren't sure, please call us.
This is an upgraded electronic distributor containing the following:
Powerspark Electronic Ignition Kit - This kit (pre-fitted in this distributor) replace the standard points and condenser system with a simple electronic pick up. It gives trouble free starting and smoother running to rid your classic car of ignition related maintenance issues.
With Powermax Red Rotor Arm - A moulded rotor arm unit designed to be stronger and more reliable than the original riveted unit. Riveted rotor arms are known to loosen and break apart over time - the Powermax moulded arm is a no compromise replacement.
