  1. The last 40 years my fascination was to learn everything about the old-fashioned ignition systems which were used on oldtimers and classic cars, made between 1930 and 1970. Like the most of you will know the most wellknown manufacturers of ignition systems are Autolite, Bosch, Delco Remy, Ducellier, Ford, Lucas, Marelli, PAL, RB and SEV. However there did exist a lot of other rather unknown manufacturers of ignition systems. My fascination has lead to a very rare stock of ignition parts, including ignition points, distributor caps, rotors and condensors, especially for European microcars. I am living in the Netherlands, but i can send parcels all over the world if you are interested in obtaining rare ignition parts. But, be fast. You will understand that my stock is very limited ! ! !.

  9. NOS ignitionparts for (nearly) all British made cars from 1930-1970 like distributor caps, rotors, ignition points and condensors. Also available: 6-12-24 volt bulbs, 6-12-24 volt indicator (flasher) units, carbon brushes for startermotor/generator. Send a mail bsilvius@hotmail.com. The photos which are attached are only meant to be as a global impression: with many thousands of different items it is just impossible to show you all ignition items. The majority of the british cars did use Lucas ignition, however sometimes Delco Remy or other makes has been used too. In case of any need please give following info: Make, Type, Model, Year, preferable with the make of the ignition. It is advised to add a sharp close-up photo of the old part too as an extra way of control for you and for me. Mails are always answered by me.
  10. for most Lagonda models i do have NOS distributor caps (12cyl sold out), rotors, ignition points and condensors.
  11. Hello Phil, The 652C distributor was not mentioned anymore in my original Delco Remy catalogue from 1948, covering all distributors between 622 and 665 (+ all the newer distributors), covering passengercars as well as trucks. The numbers of the distributors jump from 649 to 660, and unforunately nothing between. However there are 2 other possibillities for getting results. Please take off your old distributor cap and see of numbers are stamped inside the cap. Do the same with the rotor. With some luck you will find numbers (6 or 7 digits). With those numbers i can determine for sure what cap or rotor is needed. If you cannot find numbers, there is the second option. Make several close-up photographs from those items, seen under an angle from the top and seen from below and send me those photographs. If you do also need new ignitionpoints and condensor photograph them too. A good and sharp photo is worth for me as good as a usefull catalogue..., because of my vast experience and knowledge of ignitions. Even if you have found numbers, I do advise you strongly to send me the photos too: it gives me and you an extra security for having rhe right items. Why do I ask this? I am retired now, but I do still have a big stock of the most rare distributor caps, rotors, ignition points and condensors, mainly for cars from 1930 till 1965. With more than 35 years of experience in the field of ignition, I do know all the tricks to find the right part for your car. Do not hesitate to send me a private mail. I am living overseas in the Netherlands, but i do send your order anywhere you want.
  12. DKW cars are not difficult to service, however they do have an unusual ignition. The engine has 3 cylinders, each cylinder has his own ignition point and his own ignition coil. If you are not used to work at the ignition of DKW cars, it is usually said (also by "professional" mechanics) that it is a difficult car to service, which is actually not true. The reality however is following. How difficult is it to set the ignitiontiming on a normal car? Not so difficult, is it not? Once when you have set the timing right, the job is done. It is therefore not difficult to set the timing three times (3 cylinders with 3 ignitionpoints), so just doing the job three times, each time on another cylinder, that is all, folks. That is not difficult, only unusual. I have more than 35 years experience with working on all three cylinder DKW-cars, so I do know what I am talking about. If you want to know more, you can also send me a private message.
  13. Hello Peter, I am living overseas in the Netherlands and I am a retired ignition specialist with an wide stock NOS distributor caps, rotors, ignition points and condensors.. Could you send me by mail photos of your cap and rotor, showing the upper side + under. Ben Silvius
  14. Hanski you are quite right what other are missing totally. This Tatra was only available with an aircooled V8 engine, just like the elder Tatra models.
  15. As a DKW enthousiast and specialist who is driving more than 30 years on a daily base DKW-cars, i can highly recommend to buy these DKW cars to any reader.of this topic. From experience i do know that these DKW cars are easy to handle in combination with a very reliable technic. Because of the frontwheel drive they do give a very pleasant way of driving. Missing parts cannot be a problem because i have a big stock of new and used original parts, including a brand new engine .....!! Ben Silvius from the Netherlands.
