Kind of a survey I’m curious about:
How many of you have replaced your distributor pickup coil in your HE V12 Lucas distributor with an aftermarket one? part AEU1721?
If so, do you see that the black and red wires coming out of the distributor will not line up with the plug wires going to the amp? Here is a photo of mine.
When you plugged it in this way, did everything run fine?
