CDI or capacitor discharge ignition was only fitted to a number of home market C.I. and AVL 350s and is a completely different bit of kit and not interchangeable. Unless you are really really good I shall post a very tedious string of photos to show the difference...  :P

    No photos necessary, especially if the string of them is tedious.  ;)
    I was just curious, since pics I did see on E-bay appeared physically identical.

    I've contacted Hitchcocks and they can send me a couple TCIs straight away.
