Ok.
Whilst persisting with my harmonic balancer problem, i decided to rip my dizzy out too.
It has alot of play in the bushes, the vacuum advance is stuffed and the plate is almost ceased.
I'm not sure whether to repair it or buy a newie.

Is something like this any good?

And is something like this just a cheap imitation of Bosch?

I'd go the 2nd one as I know you have to put a grub screw in the rotor button on the procomp ones. For some reason the procomp rotor buttons don't fit real well. They fit loosely.

i ended up reco'ing mine, the vacuum advance was stuffed, the plate was ceased up and it got a full rebuild/curve.
i put it in the car and it made a HUGE difference.
thanks for the help guys.
