Btw, the cap also fits an MSD VW dizzy.


Excellent! Thanks for the correct call up part numbers.

Stu, I believe Concept 1 is in your town, Cowtown!

They are 123 dizzy distributors, last I checked. They dont stock Twink just VW, Ied take a set or two, and some LCCBC members have interest.


The Concept 1 guys are great. They were able to easily match up replacement CV’s for my aftermarket drive shafts. That said, I am happy with my MSD dizzy for the foreseeable.

Cheers!

Hi Stu
If you cant get the advance you want with the Dizzy hitting the block just move the dizzy to advance by moving to the next a tooth on the gear to the jackshaft which will move the body back the equivalent enabling more advance at the maximum advance position the dizzy body will go to. I have to do the same thing with the Bosch dizzy I use as the external condenser that hits the block if I don,t pick the right tooth setting

cheers

Excellent Rohan. I figured there was an easy fix. That should put the desired advance midrange on the adjustment.
