Hi Allan,
              Miller  parts are becoming very scarce now - however the coil can be replaced with a 6 volt Lucas unit. Regarding condensors - they do not seem to be voltage sensitive - I have been running my Dragonfly for about 10 years on condensers for a Vauxhall Viva. The points are a problem because they have to be very compact to fit in the Miller distributor. You could try looking for points for a Syba Dynastart (as fitted to Villiers engines used in invalid carriages etc.). The moving point is almost identical (just needs the hole in the end of the spring opened out to a slot). The mounting bracket for the fixed point needs rebending to make it suitable for use in our distributors. Another bonus is that the Dynastart uses two sets of these points - one for forward running and the other for reverse.
           Hope this is of some help,
                          Regards,
                                         Eddie.
