3BOS6C2

Hot-Spark 3BOS4C2 electronic ignition conversion kit for early Bosch 4-cylinder, non-vacuum-advance distributors with 2-piece, right-hand points       Breaker plate from Bosch non-vacuum-advance distributor with 2-piece points

Early, non-vacuum-advance, 6-cylinder Bosch distributor with 2-piece points.

Note upright brass pivot pin.

If a Bosch distributor has 2-piece points, an upright brass pivot pin will remain,

standing up from the breaker plate, after the points have been removed.

 

3BOS6C2 Electronic Ignition Conversion Kit: Fits certain VW, Porsche, BMW, Alfa-Romeo, Mercedes-Benz, Volvo, Volvo-Penta, etc., with non-vacuum-advance distributors with 2-piece points

Also available in 4-cylinder version - 3BOS4C2 (12-volt) or 3BOS4C2-6N (4-cylinder, 6-volt, negative ground)

 

    The Hot-Spark electronic ignition conversion kit replaces breaker points and condenser in the distributor to provide rock-solid reliability. With the Hot-Spark electronic ignition, dwell and timing are always spot-on accurate.

 

    No matter how strong your engine is, you won't get the most out of it without a good spark. The stock Bosch ignition system used technology that dates back a century - to the Kettering system, which was introduced in the 1910 Cadillac. Even though you can adjust breaker points for near-electronic ignition performance, they will burn and wear within a few thousand miles, long before the recommended replacement interval. With points, the timing will drift; power and fuel economy will suffer.

 

    The Hot-Spark electronic ignition conversion kit delivers a strong spark every time and is maintenance-free. You'll notice quicker starts, more top end power and a little gas mileage boost. It's as easy to install as points and condenser!

 

Advantages of the Hot-Spark electronic ignition conversion kit:

 

Early Bosch distributors (generally pre-1968 or so) have 2-piece points. Some BMW, Porsche and Mercedes distributors have left--pivoting points; some have right-pivoting points. Please compare the points in your Bosch distributor to the photo of points below:

 

Bosch 1-piece and 2-piece, left-hand and right-hand points

 

 

Determine whether your Bosch distributor has single-piece points, as early (pre-1968 or so) Bosch distributors typically have 2-piece points. If it has 2-piece points, a brass pivot pin will remain, standing up from the breaker plate, after you remove the points.

 

Sorry, we don't have ignition kits to fit early Bosch/VW distributors with the large distributor cap.
