Re: Help needed with mk1 strada 105tc

Coil is Fiat P/N: 4460205

Available from here:
http://www.ignitioncarparts.co.uk/Pa...PC12603&s_vid=

Ignition module (Digiplex) is P/N: 7542156

A Google for - 7542156 fiat - gets some hits.

The Digiplex units are quite rare now.

Re: Help needed with mk1 strada 105tc

You could be right.

You mentioned ignition module and I read digiplex unit.

I guess you need to tell us if your have:

Points in the distributor and vacuum advance on the distributer?.

Re: Help needed with mk1 strada 105tc

Just had a quick look and i can't see a vacuum on the distributor, and in the haynes manual it quotes a inductive discharge, breakless distributor,mechanical advance for 105tc up to 1983.

Re: Help needed with mk1 strada 105tc

what about points in the distributor?

I can't but help think that your 105TC is supposed to have a Digiplex unit.

Hanes manuals are generally not that bad. I have the one for the Strada 105TC with 130TC supplement and it seems to confirm the Digiplex ignition unit.

Re: Help needed with mk1 strada 105tc

Fiat only ever fitted the digiplex system to the series 2 stradas . The MK1 105 TC had the magnet marelli system off the fiat 131 sport . The fiat 131 sport was fitted with either a bosch or magnet marelli system . My 131 sport has the magnet marelli system and i should be abale to take a picture of the system at the weekend . Any 12 volt coil will do . I have have the genuine Fiat 105tc mk 1 manual . Is this the car that was for sale in shrewbury a few months ago as i was after it .

Re: Help needed with mk1 strada 105tc

Mark 1 Stradas are rare cars particularly the 105. Would love to see this car restored. I looked at buying it too but decided i have enough projects already
