Recommended Posts

I bought a vw bosch 009 distribitor for my 25 DB four cylinder per the letter Jervey Millemon wrote, But I need more info, the distributor is too tall, It doesn't fit between the exhuast manifold and the distributor hole. and the diameter of the distributor housing is too small. I don't see how he got this distributor to work???? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I think the main reason to go with a "modern" Bosch replacement would be that the pot-metal distributor housing has "fallen" apart... In that case an exchange would be unlikely. I'm glad the dist on my Fast Four still seems solid.

Correction to my previous post... It looks like an exchange IS possible (sorry Leadfoot) when your '26 - '28 potmetal distributor housing is shot. The back cover of the D-B Club News shows an ad where the old cracked housing is replaced using your "original guts".
