    Stripped this distributor to investigate why it was very stiff to turn, the felt pad inside, between top & bottom shaft bushes was gunged-up with burnt oil, just needed a soak in brake cleaner, dried and oiled, now turns easily. However, during dismantling, the 2 Fibre washers (1 at each end of...

    Hi I'm hoping someone can help me with this as it's driving me nuts. I'm tuning my VW T2 1978. It's hydraulic lifters so no need to adjust valves. So points ago is next. If I set the points gap using a feeler gauge to 0.016 and check it with a dwell meter the reading is 43. So way off the...

    I think I may have threaded the screw that hold that locks the points to their setting. I'm afraid to tighten it too much because I'm sure I've felt it loosen when tightening a couple of times. Is there anything I can do about this or will it eventually mean a new dizzy? It's a SVDA.

    I am rebuilding my 1973 1200 beetle engine & whilst rooting round on the net for advice about timing, I came across the following statement about the Bosch 009 dizzy; "Please note that VW never used the 009 distributor for any of it's beetle models, and so, although it will work, you may get...

    I needed to replace the dizzy clamp on my van so thought I'd go posh and get a JayCee billet one. Looks nice. However, before I pull the dizzy out I thought to myself, the van has a 009 and the (1300 single port) bug engine (which is in the back not being used) has a (as far as I know) stock...

    All items now SOLD. Have some stuff for sale, as trying to get together more money to finish off my turbo engine :incheek:. First up, Holley Red fuel pump. Ideal for cars running twin carbs.

    I was replacing my points and condenser on my Bosch 009 today and decided to check the condition of my mechanical advance, so I took the plate off and inspected, I found there to be only 1 spring? Is this a major problem? Or is it supposed to be like that? Heres some pics: Mounting points...

    I was messing around with my bug and had detached a few components from my engine (carb off manifold, HT lead out of coil, spark leads out, dizzy cap off) Then randomly out of nowhere I heard a 'Ping!' I looked down and there was a little spring that had droped from somwhere and landed on the...
