Rebuilt Electronic Distributor L16 L18 L20B E12-80 4 Cylinder

complete electronic ignition conversion distributor for the 4 Cylinder L Series

Datsun Electronic Distributor No Core Required! Cap and Rotor and Mounting Base (required) is included!

This is a complete electronic ignition conversion distributor for the 4 Cylinder L Series. Simple two wire connection from the distributor to the coil. Great upgrade to electronic ignition and remove your old points set up.

I have sold dozens of these with great results. Completely rebuilt using all new and reconditioned parts. I also sell these for the Z Cars 6 cylinder versions. This mod converts a Points ignition to an electronic distributor.

Use quality spade lugs and wire with TIGHT crimps, and solder the wire to the spade connections if possible. Don't solder or crimp onto the E12-80, just make sure the spades fit on tight. A stock tachometer may not work with this setup because its inductive pickup isn't compatible with the signal from the E12-80. There are two solutions: Connect the tachometer sensor lug to the - terminal on the E12-80 module. If the tachometer jumps around, solder a 7500-10,000 ohm resistor inline with the sensor wire to reduce the signal voltage. If it still won't work buy a Autometer #3990 black face tachometer.
