take your cover off and have a look if the bearing looks to have corrosion just piss it off if it looks lubricated then leave it

if the discs are the same don't worry about it, the irradic spark can be from a list of things

its a poor discription because irradic spark can come from anything leads, cas, dizzy, button, timing, heat, ecu, interference, wiring list is endless


auto1 broadmeadows mate home of the vl turbo, i also got one from niddrie auto 1

ANDDDDDDD make sure its for an RB30 the rb series look similar but they aren't

any other queries?

I just rebuilt mine. I used a fuel miser CAS, changed the plug and contacts. Really when doing this you need to cahnge the oil seal that sits under the bearing, the bearing itself and install a rubber O ring between the distribuitor housing and cap so you dont have the wet dizzy problem again. Ill do this for $200 exchange, PM if intrested.

I would strongly recommend to replace the bearing as well its a little more labour but for a $5 part it could save your new CAS failing, when the bearing gets rusty the fine dust can **** the sensor

I was having rough idle issues with mine.
Pulled CAS apart (using this guide)
Used contact cleaner on everything, pry'd the little cas/sensor piece out a little sprayed the $%^& out of it,
Sprayed all over the little disk, put it all back together
lightly sanded/cleaned the contact points on the rotor button
re-installed
runs like a dream.

Checked ECU diags. and no codes for this are appearing, and was able to get the tune (red/green lights - flashing in sync) by following the other guide on tuning (AFM anti-clockwise screw to richen it up)

I was willing to replace the cas, but thought it would be worth a shot at cleaning it first
