  3. Don’t get the 009 non vacuum; the SVDA with vacuum might be okay but what’s wrong with whatever distributor you have?
  4. Nothing it works it's a 009 none vac I've no idea if it's an after market.
    But I was told a electronic with a vac would be better, do u agree?

  5. Yes, a SVDA distributor with (or without) electronic points is better than a 009.

  6. The link is an Accuspark distributor. I used one for a few years without any problems.

    I don’t know the website your buying from but if it’s a cheapo distributor from China swap the rotor arm and cap for decent quality ones (Beru or Bosch). Fitting it is more or less a straight swap but you’ll probably need to move the plugs leads round on the cap, and adjust the timing of course.

  8. That the same Accuspark as the ebay link. The rotor arm and cap are rubbish regardless of the colour but the distributor should be okay. Mine was anyway and I only changed it for a 123 because I could - I think I still have the Accuspark in the garage.

  9. Still better than a 009 .
    Tried everything to smooth out the delivery on the Pertronix 009 I ran for many years .
    Spent 60 quid on an accuspark - it transformed the pickup from tickover and general running . I carry a spare module 'just in case' but doubt I could find it if needed....

  10. Accuspark dizzy is fine but as said. Get a Beru cap and rotor arm and you will be fine. Time it to 28-30 degrees BTDC at 3000 rpm.
