Mitsubishi Distributor for L-series Engine (Electronic)
Posted 21 November 2006 - 11:16 PM
Everyone does the E12 Module distributor upgrade but this is a different design, dare I say but a superior more reliable and accurate dizzy.
I have provided some pictures as a reference. Has anyone got one of these? Does anyone recall seeing one on a 280zx or perhaps another injected L-series?

Mine was on my 2+2 when I bought it, but I replaced it with a 280zx unit.
(sorry for the thread necromancy, but in this case I think it's warranted)

This 1 gave up on me (it was on the car when I bought it). The module died - managed to trace down another but it was a bit expensive. I think what Dimitri said is correct you can use a Bosch module.
I almost turfed it when it broke, but I'm glad I kept it as my mechanic at the time said it was very rare and sought after.

Gav, is the drive slot in the bottom off-set like a normal L series Dist or central. If central I'd say my engine had one, and it was an imported L28 turbo. I'll have an oil pump drive shaft to suit soon if you ever need one?
I can't recall for sure from memory it could be central but I haven't looked at it in nearly 4 years.
RE: The oil pump drive shaft - just let me know I can get it shipped to my old folks place for when I eventually return to Australia .

Bit of a topic revival, but I managed to find another 1 of these in Japan recently.
The part no. is stamped in the distributor body.
I've also seen a similar distributor but different part no.
These are better than the run of the mill Hitachi units E12-80 module based distributors.

I have one of these on my car but I haven't found its original source, whether it is native to the engine (F54/N42) or come from somewhere else. I have used it for 7 years now without it missing a beat!
Sorry I can't be of more help.

That's ok, it was fitted to later L-series engines in Japan before they moved to a trigger wheel / CAS (Crank Angle Sensor) set up and was most likely fitted on saloon cars that had L-GATA motors fitted.
As you say fitted for 7 years without missing a beat, these are a good unit. I only removed mine when the module died, but they are a much better unit compared to the earlier Hitachi ones.
I paid $300 for the last 1 and in my opinion it's well worth it. I'd go trigger wheel etc..but I'm not yet ready for that kind of fancy equipment .
