Hot-Spark HS-HIT4 4-Cylinder Hitachi-Compatible Distributor with 3HIT4U1 Electronic Ignition for Datsun/Nissan L16, L18 and L20B Engines
(for 12-volt, negative ground electrical systems only)
 

Brand New Vacuum-advance Electronic HS-HIT4 Distributor Replaces Hitachi 4-Cylinder Distributors in Nissan L16, L18 and L20B Engines

Includes 3HIT4U1 electronic ignition conversion kit already installed, ready to replace your worn-out Hitachi 4-cylinder, vacuum-advance distributor – 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 3HIT4U1 electronic ignition means you won't have to fool with points and timing again – always stays in perfect tune!

Distributor is a quality reproduction of the original vacuum-advance Hitachi 22100-A3502 vacuum-advance distributor. This distributor requires a vacuum source from the carburetor or throttle body (when used with fuel injection). Uses standard Hitachi 22100-A3502 distributor cap, rotor, etc. Perfect replacement for worn-out Hitachi  distributors from Datsun/Nissan L16, L18 and L20B 4-cylinder engines.

The HS-HIT4 distributor is compatible with these standard Hitachi parts:

Can use standard Hitachi 4-cylinder Rotor and Distributor Cap (a matched set):  for 4-cylinder 22100-J1710 Nissan Z24 engine

Replaces certain 4-cylinder Hitachi L16, L18 and L20B vacuum-advance distributors

 

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.
 

Virtually all other aftermarket replacement distributors, typically, have not had the advance curve adjusted, using a precision distributor testing machine. They are usually shipped, untested, out-of-adjustment, just as they came out-of-the-box, from the Chinese factory where they were mass-produced. We set and test the advance curve of each distributor we ship for maximum acceleration and fuel economy, using a precision distributor testing machine.

 

Installing the HS-HIT4 Distributor
Rotate the engine until the rotor is pointing at No.1 Cylinder's spark plug wire. Remove each spark plug wire from the old distributor cap, one-at-a-time, and insert it into the new distributor cap in the same location and order (cylinders 1-3-4-2, counter- or anti-clockwise).

Remove the old distributor and remove its clamp. Coat the new distributor's shaft and O-Ring with motor oil before sliding it into its hole. Look down into the engine's distributor hole to see how the distributor drive slot is oriented and turn the distributor shaft to match it. Work the shaft down all the way, turning the rotor gently, as needed, until the distributor shaft gear settles into its slot and the rotor will no longer turn.

Turn the distributor body until the rotor points to the spark plug wire of No. 1 Cylinder. Place the cap on the new distributor. Tighten the distributor clamp enough so that the distributor can't turn on its own, but you can still turn it by hand.

Timing the HS-HIT4 Distributor
Use a stroboscopic timing light. Timing should be set initially to about 32° BTDC at 3,500+ RPM, vacuum hose connected. Firing order is: 1-3-4-2, counter-clockwise (anti-clockwise). The ignition timing should be checked with the engine running, using a stroboscopic timing light, ensuring optimum engine performance and economy. Paint a small line of white paint on both the reference pointer and the appropriate mark on the timing scale to make them more easily seen. With the engine running at the specified speed, the appropriate timing mark should be in line with the reference pointer. Rotate the distributor body clockwise to advance the timing, or counter-clockwise to retard it. Tighten the distributor clamp. Reconnect the vacuum line to the distributor's vacuum canister port.

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

Coil: A coil with 3.0 Ohms or more primary resistance must be used. The Beru Germany Blue Coil with 3.3 Ohms primary resistance is ideal for 4- and 6-cylinder ignition kits.

To measure coil's primary resistance: Label and remove all wires to coil ( + or - ). Using a common digital multimeter in the 200 Ω mode, cross the red and black leads of the Ohmmeter. Allow 10 seconds or more for the reading to settle and write down the reading. Still in the 200 Ohm mode, measure between coil’s + and - terminals. Allow a few seconds for the reading to settle, until it stabilizes. Subtract the previous reading, taken with the leads crossed, to compensate for multimeter’s inherent resistance. Do not use a low-resistance coil, such as the MSD or Accel coil; they don’t have enough primary resistance for this application.

www.Hot-Spark.com/Coil.htm

Test the charging system's maximum voltage:  If the charging system voltage, measured at the coil's + terminal, is more than 13.7 volts at any RPM level, the voltage regulator likely needs replacing or a 1.4 Ohm ballast resistor should be wired between the coil's + terminal and the red HotSpark ignition wire. Too much voltage can damage the ignition module and other electronic components.

Customer Testimonial:

 

Re: Forklift with Nissan J15 Engine

Dear Hot-Spark,

Just wanted to let you know that your distributor works great in the Nissan J15 engine I have in my forklift.

In order to make it work all I needed to do was to change out the gear/ coupler as well as the stock J15 clamp. This required removing the roll pin and fitting my old drive gear. All dimensions were perfect to fit the J15 drive gear.

In total took about 20 minutes longer than just swapping the distributor.

You may want to add this to your listing since no one offers a distributor with an electronic ignition for a J15 engine, which is very common in forklifts.

Thank you very much for the quick shipping! I will be giving you perfect feedback!

Thanks
Corey W.
