    Fortunately the various versions of Lucas efi used in Range Rovers, Discoveries and others are quite primitive and don't talk to the ignition. So, you can change to carbs and keep the distributor. There have been several distributors used over the years and some are more reliable than others. If you modify the engine with a lumpier cam or worked heads then you'll probably find that the advance curve isn't suitable and you might be better with a Mallory, or mapped ignition. If it's pretty close to standard RR or SD1 spec, then the distributor that came with it will be OK.

    Hi, sounds like you've got an early distributor. The white goes to a 12V feed off the ignition - the coil +ve terminal is the usual place. The white/black wire goes to the -ve terminal of the coil. Cheers, John

    1992 should be 3.9? and range rover engines are usually low compression.
    Its no good in the garage, Drive it!
