CSI ignition distributors

Recommended Posts

Has anyone bought one of these electronic distributors from Moss yet?

 

Seems that they won't work with a mechanical Tacho drive or PI, but surely the tacho drive is part of the plinth it fits into?

The Tacho drive on a 6 cylinder is part of the dizzy itself and these dont have that. They are similar to a 123 dizzy so you need to have your rev counter converted to electronic.Though it is possible to have the 123 built into a dizzy with the drive.

As a matter of interest has anybody tried or looked into one of these? http://www.aldonamethyst.co.uk/ perhaps a better price than the 123 ignition distributor?

Not sure exactly how the vacuum part of it works though, perhaps you have to take out the existing weights, I haven't really got into the detail yet.

Pete,

 

JDO will convert your tachometer to electronic if you really must. Maybe easier/ better to get the current dizzy rebuilt, it seemed OK when you were following Howard and I last year in France.

See you soon...
