Ian, did RR use Lucas electrics? I have many "fond" memories of Jaguar
and Austin Healey  systems!  I worked  part time for a chap that
installed Chevrolet V-8's in them and I did all the electrical work. The
best car I ever owned was a 63 Jag saloon with a 350ci Chevy mated to the
Jag OD transmission. Superb handling, power and reliability until the
body disappeared in iron oxide!
