2.2L Distributor

I'm looking for an early model 2.2L distributor. Need the one with vacuum advance (no HEP). Clean and in good condition/working order w/rotor & cap.

I think he meant what year distributor are you looking for.

I'm also curious what year FSM you took those pictures from???

AFAIK, the 2.2 never came with a vacuum advance distributor. It was always electronic, even in 81. I believe some of the early VW 1.7's had vacuum advance. Maybe even the 2.6 Mitsu motors may have had a vacuum advance distributor. I'd have to look in my 83 FSM. The mounting boss shown in the illustration definitely isn't for a 2.2. You sure your taking pictures of the correct section?

Re: 2.2L Distributor

Those pics are straight from the 84 L body FSM. Since it was in there, I assumed an early carb model had one like that.

I ran across a mod using a Bosh VW distributor, but the shaft modifications seemed somewhat complex. Was trying to find a simple solution, just a regular distributor with rotor and points with the weights in the bottom. The vacuum diaphragm would allow for some additional dwell, but it's not a deal breaker.

When you have a chance, I would be curious if the Mitsu distributor would work in a 2.2.

My guess is, if you look close, that page in the FSM is either for the 1.7 or 1.6 motor, maybe even the 2.6. I haven't had a chance to look at my 83 FSM to find a similar illustration.

Like I said before, AFAIK, the 2.2 never had a vacuum advance distributor.

Yes, there is a conversion for a VW Bosch 009 distributor. But be warned, all the new units are coming out of China, and from what I've read, they are junk...

Re: 2.2L Distributor

A 2300 Ford distributor is what I use in my oval track car. It works well with a few simple mods. Remove Ford gear and install 2.2 distributor drive , then clock it in the engine and drill the roll pin hole. You can use the entire Ford duraspark ignition system which is good to 8000rpm . Parts are easily available from any parts house for the Ford ignition.

I bought a 300.00 Mallory distributor once and had problems with it on race night. No parts anywhere to repair it and it took 4 days to get a rotor button. Not a good night.

Re: 2.2L Distributor

Sorry guys, I was confused. I had to look again and it must be for the older Omni 1.7 instead. Here's the book I'm using and the page it came from.

I'm going to see about using the VW Bosh 050 distributor mod instead. I want to have a good ole fashioned distributor that I can drop in if the discontinued Mallory one that's in there now goes bad.

As Miss Emilie Litella used to say...
