Good to hear some one else with a mileage that might actually beat ours 243K currently. Do not carry a spare relay at all - have one but not in car. Only carry an igniter unit. If this blows you are not going anywhere and not sure the RAC guys carry one anymore - used to be the only item they did when one of ours last went about seven years ago but even then the RAC man admitted it was about the only part he did carry and its what they always go for. Once soldered they go on and on. The car will start and get you home - just gives you a silly wait when it happens!

Good point - I've got at least 3 of those but all in the garage. Better but one in the glovebox, next to the relays...
I like Twin Cams.... and Single Cams
