I picked up my car from the garage yesterday where they had been sorting out a 'non-starting' problem and fitting a new clutch. The car started immediately and seemed to drive well. However after about 10 miles it just stopped. I diagnosed this as the rotor arm and replaced it. The car ran perfectley again. However after less than 5 miles it stopped again. It was the rotor arm again. I replaced it again and at the moment I have just left the car back with the garage. Has anyone had any similar problems? Is it possible for something to be causing the rotor arms to be 'burning out' or am I just unlucky?

Are you sure it is a genuine Lucas rota arm and dizzy cap. Some reproductions are terrible quality. Not much point changing arm either unless cap is changed (has it got its centre contact) along with points and condensor
Get from Distributor Doctor they do an uprated red version
