Vacuum Advance Distributor

Detailed Description

This is an original Bosch distributor rebuilt by an independent specialist. (Bosch no longer makes or rebuilds these themselves.) It is the correct single vacuum advance distributor for your engine, with the proper advance curve (unlike an 009 style centifugal-advance distributor). As a result your engine timing will be correct both at idle AND under load, which maximizes engine lifespan, performance, and gas mileage. Basically it's better for your engine, and performs better as well. Distributor cap not included; points and condenser included but may not be Bosch brand. Not for California Emissions models which have a Hall Sensor in the distributor.

CORE POLICY: In order to receive your core refund, you must return a distributor similar to this one (a Bosch single-vacuum-advance distributor from a '74-79 Bus, air-cooled Vanagon, or equivalent, with the vacuum canister) so it can be rebuilt for the next customer. We cannot accept a distributor with no vacuum port (such as an 009 style centrifugal advance distributor) for a core refund.
