Question about Triumph Spitfire
Fired up first time in the spring, did a 10 mile run. Next weekend turns over but won't fire up so went through each thing - changed the sparks, the leads, the diff cap, the rotor arm, the points and the coil......still no life in the old girl. So I am now looking at an ignition issue but where to start?..
I'm thinking it's the switch itself since it does fire in the 'start' position. The contacts in 'run' position may have become worn, hence no current supply to ignition.. This is not unusual if the ignition key is combined with several others, placing extra weight on the mechanisim. This happens with air cooled Porsche 911's and older liquid cooled VW's..
