Foreward, by Bud Krueger:
For the past few years there has been an epidemic of ignition problems in our British cars.  Many of these problems have been traced to faulty condensers.  Steve Maas, from Long Beach, CA has created a well-written document on this issue.  Rather than copy Steve's paper here I'm opting to provide you with a 'click-on-it' link to Steve's original paper.
