212- If one of the capacitor discharge units ever gives you a problem, there is a company making a replacement that fits inside the original pot metal/aluminum case. The points on the dual distributor V12s have been so reliable with only three cam lobes that I would not change them, but eventually a pair of modern capacitor discharge units may become necessary.
They were already missing on my Daytona when I got her, but she ran fine on just points and coil. Later, when I had a Fiat Dino 2400 GT in the UK, I put an MSD unit on her to replace the missing Dinoplex. I could not believe how much smoother and more powerful the engine was after that. Should have done it on the Daytona, too, but never got around to it before she was gone.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
