Quality Pertronix product. The ultimate in performance ignition this vacuum advance style distributor features the Pertronix ignitor 3 built in this offers 5 times more spark than a standard ignition points system. Fits VW Beetles from 1946 to 1998, VW T2 Split Screens from 1950 to 1967 and VW T2 Bays from 1967 to 1979. For maximum power we recommend fitting a Flame Thrower 3 coil J41043 at the same time.

• Multiple sparks thru the entire RPM range. • Integrated digital rev limiter with LED feedback for precise RPM setting. • Memory safe function stores settings eliminating unintended changes to rev limit. • Adaptive dwell maintains peak energy throughout the entire rpm range, reducing misfires while improving engine performance. • peak current level is reached just prior to spark for maximum energy without the heat build-up, increasing coil performance and module reliability. • Adjusts spark timing at higher RPMs to compensate for the inherent electronic delay. • Senses start-up and increases energy for quicker, easier starting. • Thermal clad surface mount construction for superior reliability. • Built-in reverse polarity and over current protection shuts down the system, preventing component damage. Fitting Info The Ignitor III is a high performance ignition system, and although the installation is not complicated, there are some specific requirements. For optimal performance the Ignitor III requires a minimum of 12 volts. vehicles equipped with a resistance wire or ballast resistor, should be modified as outlined in the instruction manual. • Timing must be reset when ignitor 3 is fitted. • 12 volt negative ground systems • Requires 12-14 volts • Must use suppression core ignition wires • Not for use with CD or multiple spark systems • Lobe sensor design triggers off the point cam or reluctor and does not require a magnet sleeve
