Brand new vacuum-advance SVDA 034 Distributor for Volkswagen Beetle, Ghia, Thing, Bus, Type I, II, III

Includes 3BOS4U1 electronic ignition conversion kit already installed, ready to run in your air-cooled VW or Porsche – Just install distributor, connect the red wire to the coil's positive (+) terminal and the black wire to the coil's negative terminal (–), connect vacuum hose to carburetor/throttle body and set the timing - Simple!

Zero-maintenance 3BOS4U1 electronic ignition means you won't have to fool with points and timing again – always stays in perfect tune!

Our SVDA 034 distributor is a quality reproduction of the original, vacuum-advance Bosch 0 231 170 034 / VW 043-905-205, federal model distributor that came stock from the factory on the 1974 VW Beetle with 1600 engine and manual transmission. Perfect for use with the 34PICT carburetor. This distributor requires a vacuum source from the carburetor or throttle body (when used with Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection). Can use Bosch 009 distributor cap, rotor, etc. Includes OEM distributor shaft D-Ring.

* Some of the advantages of the SVDA 034 distributor over the 009 distributor:
* Better acceleration - helps eliminate the 009's infamous "flat spot" on take-off
* Cooler engine temps
* More power, throughout the advance curve
* Better fuel economy
* No need to run a rich fuel/air mixture to compensate for the 009's poor acceleration, which results in unburned hydrocarbons in the exhaust and reduced engine life

The Hot Spark SVDA distributor is ideal for use with most 12-volt, stock, air-cooled Volkswagens, except later models with factory electronic ignition and those with certain early Bosch fuel injection systems triggered by special contacts in the bottom of the distributor (Bosch D-Jetronic fuel injection).

We thoroughly examine each distributor; everything is adjusted and lubricated before shipping. We then set and test each distributor's advance curve for maximum acceleration and fuel economy, using a precision distributor testing machine.

The SVDA 034 distributor can use these standard Bosch replacement parts (same parts as Bosch 009 distributor):
Rotor: Bosch 04 033 or Beru EVL 029 (German) or Beru R001
Distributor Cap: Bosch 03 010 or Beru VK 106 (German) or Beru T001

Timing the SVDA 034 Distributor:

Use a stroboscopic timing light. Timing should be set initially to 7.5° BTDC at idle (850-900 RPM) or 30-32° BTDC at 3,500+ RPM, vacuum hose disconnected and plugged. Maximum advance, at 3,500+ RPM, vacuum hose connected, with no load on engine (car sitting still), light throttle, should not exceed 42-44° BTDC.

For proper operation of the distributor's vacuum advance, the vacuum source needs to be able to generate a minimum of about 8 inches (200 mm) of Hg. If your engine is running a high-lift, long duration cam, with cam overlap or an aftermarket carburetor setup without an available vacuum source, the vacuum-advance mechanism may not advance fully. However, the distributor's centrifugal-advance mechanism will provide the same advance curve as a properly adjusted 009 centrifugal-advance distributor, simply by capping off the vacuum port.

Compatible Carburetors: The following carburetors should produce the proper amount of vacuum for use with the SVDA 034 distributor (if they are fitted with a vacuum port):

Solex 30PICT-3
Bocar 30/31
Single or dual IDF
Solex 30/31
Solex 34PICT series
Bocar 34PICT series

If your car has Kadron or ICT carbs, connect the vacuum hose to at least one carburetor. If your car has dual IDF or DRLA carbs, you can run a vacuum hose to both carburetors, T them together and then run the vacuum hose to the SVDA 034's vacuum port.

If your 1971 VW Bus or 1971-74 VW Beetle/Ghia/Thing has the original dual-vacuum distributor and you replace it with the SVDA 034, you'll need to plug (cap off) the carburetor's retard vacuum port, which is the port located closest to you as you're looking at the carburetor from the rear of the car. Use the advance vacuum port, located on the left side of the 34PICT carburetor.

This distributor requires a 12-volt, negative ground electrical system.

Coil: Beru Germany Blue Coil with 3.3 Ohms Primary Resistance included.

Test the charging system's maximum voltage: If the charging system voltage, measured at the coil's positive terminal, is more than 14.0 volts at 2,500+ RPM, the voltage regulator likely needs replacing or a 1.4 Ohm ballast resistor should be wired between the coil's + terminal and the red Hot Spark ignition wire. Too much voltage can damage the ignition module and other electronic components.


We inspect each distributor thoroughly; everything is checked, adjusted, lubricated, etc. We then set and test the advance curve on a precision distributor testing machine.

Customer Testimonials:

I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with my purchase of the SVDA 034 distributor for air-cooled VW. I have a '69 VW convertible bug with a stock 1600 dual port engine and it had the 009 centrifugal-advance distributor with a stock 34PICT carburetor. I have had the usual "stumble" and crappy slow speed throttle response. I installed the new SVDA 034 distributor with electronic ignition this morning. All went like clockwork and had much to do with your excellent directions.

After setting up the timing I went out for a drive and was blown away by how well the engine ran. No more stumble. The transition from slow speed to highway "without" a full throttle attack was amazing! Thanks for such a great product!

Yucaipa, California


This is to express my thanks for the excellent service you recently provided me. The Hot Spark distributor has behaved faultlessly during our 17,000 miles trip through South and Central America.

Kind regards,

Ross Letten
