Sourcing parts for a 280zx dizzy other than Nissan
Posted 15 December 2008 - 05:58 PM
I need the following parts:
6 - magnet
8 - breaker plate
The magnet and breaker plate assembly is all i need the other stuff all seem to be in alright condition.
I will try repco and bursons tomorrow, do i just give them the Nissan part number?
BTW Nissan wanted 130 for the breaker plate and 35 for the magnet, prices aren't that bad but there was a 3 week wait as they had to be ordered from japan.

I also need parts for a 280ZX distributor model D6K9-17. My second hand unit has given up the ghost.
If anyone can help me I require the Vacuum Controller (No 16 in the diagram) and the Breaker Plate Assembly (No 8 in the diagram)
I have tried Nissan, they don't have them in stock but reckon they can get them ex Japan for $170 for the Breaker Plate and $110 for the Vacuum Controller both plus freight. This seems a bit dear to me.
I am considering a supposed reco distributor from US for $226.00 plus $45 freight but am looking at all options.
If anyone has any advice it will be appreciated.

Petronix is available from Melbourne and the guys were very helpful over the phone.
Another option, but a lot more expensive is to use a Crane or Mallory module and dizzy.

Thanks very much for the reply. Yes I am definitely interested in ordering the parts. I need the Vacuum Advance Unit and the breaker plate assembly. Though do you know if you can buy just the metal housing for the bearings? As this is all I really require.
I would very much appreciate it if you could let me know how to facilitate payment etc.
Thanks also for your replies Lurch and Scootag,
I did consider the Pertronix conversion kit prior to fitting the 280ZX Distributor. As the old points distributor is worn and also had advance issues (baseplate plate bearings seized?) It seemed to me that the Pertronix Unit wouldn't be the whole solution. The 280ZX distributor was a huge improvement, even though it is clearly "flogged out"as you describe it the car ran a heap better than it did with the old distributor. Now if I can get the 280ZX distributor in a more service state all should be well.

Have any of you ever been looking in to Ford EDIS i believe that this is the future for L6 engines.

I have just started looking into Edis recently thanks to Garvice. Lots of good info on it over at hybridz. I got 8 ls1 coils for $100 off ebay recently so I'm 1/4 of the way there haha.

Lot's of EDIS on the net, we dont have pick'n pull here and used auto parts prices are to high compared to other contrys, so i got a set from a US, ebay seller, for US$ 60.
Are you going to run MegaJolt to control it, or another EMS ?

Reviving a thread from the dead as I couldn't find an answer in search. Primarily I wanted to know if the 280zx distributor cap varied year to year - Mine is a 12-80 (well that's what is stamped on the side). I couldn't find a cap using the Bosch site. But it would appear to be a GH613-C?
I was also keen to know why welding up the vacuum advance is a bad idea if one doesn't care about efficiency.
