Dristributor options

#1 Post by Jacques Lefriant » Thu Sep 20, 2018 11:38 am

Hi
Has everyone lost their minds? Why would anyone pay $250 for a $30 chinese VW dizzy that has been made to look original and has the right curve? Why would you pay someone $200 to someone to do a couple of hrs of non skilled work to rehabilitate an original core that they paid over a $100? Why use points and condensors that will fail or wear out? Why would you buy a shim kit for $100 for 2 dollars worth of parts? yes i hate the look of the 123 part but at least it is on the right tract to having the best solution. a crank triggered one would work better and a dummy distributor would satisfy the originalist and keep the rotor properly phased if no vacuum override.

I am very happy with my 123 Tune distributor. Its looks don't bother me at all.
