I'm lucky enough to have 2 shops within about 10-12 miles of me that have most of the parts I need in stock.stratocaster said:Just bought my first Triumph.It's a '67.

As far as the '70's condensors, don't use 'em. The fibre ends are prone to cracking & moisture related issues. Pick up a couple for a late '60's Chevy, I've been running 'em for years. You're on the right track getting away from the '67 points and condensor.
There is a big difference in the points. I don't believe you'll be able to make 'em work.ssjones said:Les:
(warning: stupid question alert!)
Are the points the same on 4CA and 6CA ignitions? My bike has condensors mounted on the coils, so mine is a 6CA. I bought new points/condensors the other day, but mistakenly told the guy my condensers were internal. The points look slightly different than what is currently installed. Wondering if he gave me 4CA points, if there is a difference.
So you are saying just to install a two condensors from a 60's small block chevy? Will they mount on my coils like now or will I have to fab a mount? Here's a shot of my current setup.
hate to revive such an old post but in regard to the above stated .....On Ebay,do yourself a favor and NEVER buy from Limeyspares9eaz or britbikeparts from Chicago.He has 3 Ebay names,and all have alot of negative feedback.Absolute scammer and cost me alot of money.Go read his feedback...you'll get a kick out of it if he hasn't ripped you off yet.
Also on Ebay ttpron....his name is Ron and very helpful.He sells Boyer ignition,great prices and super helpful too.
I have never dealt with Wes at Four Aces,but have read alot of his tech help,and he seems like a very reputable stand-up guy.
