Electronic Ignition

Electronic Ignition

IGNITION CONVERSION KIT for 009 DISTRIBUTOR! Convert 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 is for the 009 (after market) distributor on the following cars:

VW Beetle and VW Super Beetle 71-79
VW Bus 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.
