Hi there people, was hoping to get an understanding of what dizzy would work best for my current set up please. 1641 engle w110 cam, 34 pict 3, electronic ignition. I am currently running a dizzy with a vac advance but am unsure what type I have. just wanting to know what dizzy type would suit...
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...
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:
Currently running the dreaded 009, and have been meaning to get some vac advance back in my life for a while now. Would this dizzy be any good? Seems ludicrously cheap. Any experiences/advice?

I have, what I believe to be, a SVDA distributor that I'd like to use to replace my current 009 distributor.
I have a '79 bus with a 1600 twin port engine. I believe it to be stock, but it might have a fast cam.

option 2 - buy the £40 one Status are selling (including the vac...
Since wiring in my choke so it actually turns off:p and doing the timing, my engine splutters when putting my foot down hard, it isn't carburettor icing, i think it is related to timing, i don't know if it is too advanced or over retarded, can someone help???
I have read some conflicting advice on timing a vac advance only dizzy.

What is the reason for this difference and which should I use? I am asking because I plan on replacing my 009 in favour of the VW 111-905-205AA...
