Default Distributor suitable for T1 1600 TP (AD)

I have acquired this distributor, which I believe is off a T3 engine:
Bosch JFUR 4
0 231 167 014
VW 311 905 205 T
It has centrifugal and Vacuum advance, and the vac can has another connection for retard.
Would it be suitable for a T1 AD engine , or a 1955 cc stroker ?

It is off a T3, but it's very likely got a badly worn base plate so test it with a dwell meter first, before you throw the vacuum can away and fit a single unit. Overall you would do better fitting a later distributor ie 73-on.

Many thanks, I'll test it, & maybe some T3 enthusiast will be interested in it.
