Volkswagen Bus, Vanagon, Eurovan Distributors, Caps and Parts

Vacuum advance distributors were made, for a long time, by Bosch in Mexico. These have not been available for years ! The only brand new distributor that we offer is the "mechanical or centrifugal advance" distributor. It works well if you are not fanatical about absolutely optimum performance. It does require careful timing procedures. Here is a great set of instructions (you may have to copy and paste this url to your browser):
