For: Volkswagen Beetle Ignition: Electronic Ignition Conversion
IGNITION CONVERSION KIT FOR YOUR ORIGINAL DISTRIBUTOR (SEE LIST BELOW)! Turn your standard ignition into an electronic ignition with this conversion kit!

Key Features:

  • Eliminates points and condenser.
  • Dust and water resistant
  • Flawless ignition performance with no points to "bounce"
Must be used with a coil with an internal resistor or an external ballast resistor.

This kit fits stock (original) distributor on the following cars:

VW Beetle and VW Super Beetle 71-79
VW Karmann Ghia 71-74
VW Type 3 71-73
VW Vanagon 80-mid 83
VW Thing 73-74

In an electronic ignition system all of the spark plug firing
is directed electronically. There are no moving parts in an
electronic ignigion system, so nothing to wear out. The
fuel and air mixture is ignited optimally so starting is more
reliable in an electonic ignition system. Plugs last longer.
Wear out of points, which results in decrease in "dwell"
period, is no longer a problem when you install electronic
ignition.However: to guard against the small possibility
of a system failure (rare with our electronic ignition) which
would kill the car, we do recommend carrying a set of
points and a condenser.

The electric ignition replaces the points and condenser in your distributor.
Electronic ignition raises the voltage to the spark plugs thereby
increasing the life of the plugs and improving starting and fuel economy.
These electronic ignition kits are quite easy to install.
