Sorry. Misread the question....
Dunno. I only have a single fixed plate ala Cooper S in my 23D6. None of that
vacuum advance complications. ;-)

the clamp on a 25D6 crushes the clamping face. You can machine the clamping
face off, and make a new larger height, smaller diameter alloy clamp (or buy
the clamp from e.g. Denis Welch)

cause of the low speed roughness and does anyone have a servicable plate for a
bt7 that i could buy ?  hjim
