Set It and Forget It - Never Adjust Points or Timing Again!

     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, breaker points-based ignition system uses 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:

 

Virtually all 4-cylinder, air-cooled VW distributors have right-pivoting 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.

For 12-volt, negative ground electrical systems only.
