Ok i need a dizzy for my car to get it up and running and i just got this one off ebay, opened the packet and its cracked in the cap ! Now i wouldnt have a problem returning it, IF i didnt need my car asap ! It only looks like its just a crack and both upper and underside seem fine !

Will the affect the starting/running of the car?

Picture is not working but it only cracked around one of the nodes, the node moves a little but sits ok !

going down the the wreckers soon, i will see if i can get one that looks good if not ill have to get a new one !

One more question what does inside the dizzy look like? Because when i took the cap off this one it has the big conductor thing and thats it nothing but a grey slope all round, but in my manual it looks like it looks different on the inside !

my dizzy has been in over 12 months now, no probs, brother inlaws dizzy is 10 months now too. we never changed the gears over either.
remember to tell your mechanic dont force the dizzy in, let it slip in nice and easy. may need 2 people to fit it, 1 to gently push the dizzy in, 1 to click the key to crank it over a little and line up with the aux shaft.
