What is the production brand name of this distributer? Will it match 30/31 and 34 pict carbs?
Question by: Farzam on 9 Jul 2017 05:41:00
They are un-branded but the quality is good. Providing the vacuum port is connected this distributor will serve you well.

According to the specs this should fit the AR 1300cc engine fine could you tell me the TDC setting and do you have some in stock.
Thanks Mark
Question by: Mark Holland on 20 May 2017 22:28:00
If you have a standard bottom pulley, there will be a TDC notch in the rear outer section but it's always recommended to use a specialist garage if unsure. We have stock of the distributor

will this distributor work on a type 4 2l CJ code engine ?
Question by: Tim on 30 Apr 2018 22:34:00
It will but if you are replacing a dual vacuum system you will need to block one of them off

Afternoon- really boring question for you...
The part number doesn't appear on any non-vendor sites, so is the "R" at the end your own code for reproduction/replacement etc.? Is the centrifugal/vacuum advance spec from this the same as an 043 905 205 without suffix i.e. 8-12º vacuum, 20-25º centrifugal?
Question by: Simon Dixon on 19 Jun 2019 15:25:00
That's correct. Many years ago we stocked Genuine as well as a reproduction so we used the R to differentiate suppliers. It does have the same characteristics as the 043905205

Can I use this item on a 36 horse power motor with a 28 pic vacume advance carburettor?
Question by: Glenn Collier on 22 Feb 2018 13:55:00
This distributor will work just fine with your engine/carburetor as long as you have a take off on the carb or intake manifold for the vacuum advance.

I have a dual advance vacuum distributor for a type 3. You cannot buy these new so will this single advance fit and how?
Question by: Matthew Chambers on 17 May 2019 22:31:00
I'm afraid we don't have a huge amount of info on Type Three application. We think, that if you fit a single from 1 carb and block off the other, it should operate.
Answer by: Nick Bitton (Admin) on 20 May 2019 11:05:00
On a dual throat Carburettor, cylinders 1&2, 3&4, will one vacuum line from one side work.
Question by: Hans J Seyffer on 26 Apr 2019 10:14:00
Taking the vacuum from one carb will be fine as long as the vacuum port on the other carb is blocked
Answer by: Ben Pascoe (Admin) on 29 Apr 2019 13:31:00
After years using an 009 distributor and its lousy advance adjustment I have decided to go back to the vacuum advance carb. Trouble is I can´t find my metal tube/pipe that links carb and distributor. I can´t see it advertised anywhere. Can I use air hose or make my own ?
Question by: Chris Wheatley on 15 Dec 2017 19:42:00
Due to the vacuum an air hose will tend to collapse. VW specify a 3mm ID solid line
