In reply to a message from DanS sent Tue 18 Feb 2003:
…since my first post I’ve been doing a lot of reading and looking
around here and at other Jag forums, and I’m starting to wonder if
what is fitted to my car is an aftermarket ignition unit…
…can anyone tell me if they have, or have seen such a unit fitted
to a Jag of similar year (1994 3.2 S) - all of the other stuff that
I have read describes a distributor based system, which this
obviously is not…
…it’s rectangular, about 8 inches by 4 inches, sits near the
inner wing at the drivers side (RHD) bulkhead, has a connector
block on the left side, and is a solid green/olive potted resin
block with six lead connector sockets.
It sits in a metal housing a bit like a battery carrier, and has no
obvious markings - is held in by 4 allen screws, and from the
condition of them I’d say it had been there from the beginning, the
screws are a bit corroded, but not too much, and the car overall is
completely corrosion free, aside from the odd bolt head etc, which
is why I think this has been on it since the start…
…if anyone has any idea what this is puuulllleeeasse let me
know… I was trying to solve a couple of other problems yesterday
morning, and now I am totally stuck with this situation which means
I cant do a damn thing till I get it identified !
…and the moral of the story is… buy your 4 year old coveralls
by all means… give him some spanners to play with sure… dont
let the little angel ANYWHERE NEAR the cat !!
