Ignition Distributor - New German VW Bosch w/ Hall Sender
Please specify your vehicle here.
Volkswagen/Germany had some of these left in stock, still in the Bosch boxes, and we snapped them up! Given that the Hall sender alone is worth at least $150, they are an absolute steal This will be your last chance to get a brand new German distributor, since everything made today is either Chinese or rebuilt.
These are European spec and the advance curve is slightly different from the original U.S. version. We tested them head-to-head on a U.S. spec Vanagon and found that they actually performed just slightly better. Not enough to be worth swapping if your existing distributor is still good, but a minor upgrade if you need a new distributor anyway.
This distributor also fits air cooled Vanagons with Calfornia Emissions, which would have had a hall sender. If your air cooled Vanagon does not have a hall sender this is not the distributor you need.
Note, this distributor comes with the later style distributor cap, originally used from mid 1984 on, which has studs inside the spark plug holes. Pull one spark plug wire from your existing cap and look into the hole in the cap. If it has a stud sticking out you're fine. If not, you'll have to either re-use the cap you have or buy a new one (linked below).
Core Deposit: We are charging a $85 core deposit on these, even though they are new, which will be refunded upon return of your old distributor. (You can send it back cheaply by Priority Mail.) This is because we need to collect some cores to rebuild once these new ones are gone.
