Brand new vacuum-advance SVDA 034 distributor for Volkswagen Beetle, Karmann-Ghia, Thing, Bus, Type I, II, III, IV, and air-cooled, four-cylinder Porsche 914, 356, etc.. With electronic ignition, instead of points/condenser. Advance curve set for optimal performance with most 4-cylinder, air-cooled VW and Porsche engines. US $113.95

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 (+ or 15) terminal and the black wire to the coil's negative terminal (- or 1) and set the timing with a strobe light - Simple!

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

The 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 fuel injection). Can use standard Bosch distributor cap, rotor, vacuum can, etc.

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

This distributor fits 12-volt, air-cooled Volkswagen, except later models with factory electronic ignition and 1974 and earlier Bosch fuel injection systems triggered by contacts in the bottom of the distributor.

Works great with Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection on 1975-83 VW Bus/Vanagon (except '79-83 California models).

Includes cap, rotor, OEM distributor shaft O-Ring and everything you need - no external ignition box required.

Coil Required: Coil must have a minimum of 3.0 Ohms primary resistance.

This distributor fits the following Volkswagen models (12 volt only):

Type I - Beetle, Bug 1946-1979
Karmann Ghia, 1956-1974
Thing, Type 181, 1973-1975
Type II: 1950-1979 Bus, Transporter, Station Wagon, Kombi, Westfalia Camper (not '79 California model)
Type III - 1962-1973
Type IV (412) 1974
Vanagon 1980-83, 2.0 liter (except California model)
Most four-cylinder, air-cooled Porsche with points distributors (not for early 1970s D-Jetronic fuel injection, which is triggered by special contacts in the bottom of the early D-Jetronic fuel-injection distributor). The SVDA 034 distributor works great with later L-Jetronic fuel injection systems (1975-on VW bus fuel injection).

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

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

Includes everything you need - no external ignition box required.

SVDA034/3BOS4U1 Electronic Vacuum/Centrifugal-Advance Distributor
SVDA 034 Distributor for four-cylinder, air-cooled VW & Porsche with electronic ignition conversion kit installed. Requires vacuum source from carburetor or fuel injection throttle body. $99.95 $14 Shipping to anywhere in the USA

Thousands of satisfied customers have installed our SVDA 034 distributors in their air-cooled VWs and Porsches.

*** DON'T BE FOOLED: Bosch no longer makes distributors for air-cooled VWs in Mexico, or anywhere else. Despite any claims to the contrary, PERTRONIX "USA" SVDA and other "SVDA" distributors, such as "Bruck Germany," "Kuhltek," etc. are MADE IN CHINA. They also, typically, have not had the advance curve adjusted. They are shipped, untested, and usually out-of-adjustment, just as they came out-of-the-box, from the Chinese factory where they were mass-produced.

*** We thoroughly inspect, tighten, lubricate and test each distributor we ship. Unlike other distributor vendors, we set and test each SVDA 034 distributor's advance curve for maximum acceleration and fuel economy, using a precision distributor testing machine. ***

Customer Testimonial:

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!

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
