Datsun Roadster 1600 or 2000 SU & Solex Electronic Distributors - Lifetime Warranty

APPLICATION:Race or Street 1600 or 2000 Roadster compatible - late style Nissan high performance electronic 12 Volt Ignition Distributor

Simple two-wire hook-up. Works great with Mikuni Solex Carburetor.

HISTORY: Distributor originally designed for other Nissan Vehicles by Nissan. The first version we saw was converted by Bill Beaubier in south bay in the late 80's. Credit to Bill for being clever and resourceful to bring it into the mainstream with a off the shelf ready to install distributor. We then picked up the manufacturing and offered a brand new, not rebuilt, distributor for $345.00 that had different mechanical advance offerings to suit a customers particular needs. Bill also gave, exclusively to us, the never produced, schematic and a sample 1500 Fairlady distributor for the SPL-310 positive ground cars that, to this date, has not been put into mass production by anyone.

Gary Boone mass marketed the E.I. distributor in 2001 which helped the roadster community get out of the dark ages of electrical firing and offered a great instruction sheet and customer support. Dave Brisco purchased the rights to produce these distributors from Gary. Dave Brisco has now passed on the torch to Tom Lorrick who is the current manufacturer.

UPGRADED PARTS: All SU versions have a NEW vacuum advance, cap and rotor are brass contacts, not the more common aluminum contacts. A new o-ring is included. Wire harnesses are all new wires and connectors, not extended junkyard harnesses. RHD harness also available. Instructions are included with your distributor containing important information regarding parts and step by step instructions.

CONSTRUCTION: All SU units are now made with roller (Torrington) bearing in the breaker plate instead of the original Nissan plastic bearing cage or a fabricated plastic replacement. Breaker plate is disassembled, brittle OEM plastic bearing cage and bearings are discarded. (itís usually broken in pieces anyway). The upper plate halves are welded for stability and a very thin, but large diameter roller bearing and hardened races replaces the 3 OEM ball bearings and weak plastic cage assembly. The much larger surface area of the roller bearing gives firmer support and frictionless movement. The bearing assemblies are rated for about 1000 times the tiny load of the breaker plate. The completed assemblies are dimensionally the same as the original. Solex units, as before, have a non-rotating locked breaker plate. The plastic cage and bearing are also eliminated during the rebuild.

TESTING: All distributors are spun up and function tested on an Allen distributor testing machine to 5000+ RPM, the limit of the tester. Verified on an oscilloscope if needed. These units easily throw a 1 inch or longer blue spark from a 12 volt performance coil and reinforce the need for high quality spark plug wires.

SU Version Distributor ONLY $355.00 Order by PART# 1161SU

SOLEX, Non- moving breaker plate no vacuum advance unit version Distributor Only $355.00 Order by PART# 1161SOL

SPECIAL COIL NOTE:A 12 volt coil is required for this conversion. The factory coil will overheat and fail. An aftermarket replacement can be used with the proper specs, Primary resistance from 0.84 to 1.02 Ohms, secondary 8.2 to 12.4 Kilo Ohms.
See this section for the coil & also a great kit containing these: distributors, coil and HD wire set combo!

Datsun Roadster 12 Volt Ignition Module

Pertronix Electronic Ignition

Made for 12 Volt ignition systems. This Petronix unit can run at full 12 volts without a ballast resistor as long as the coil measures 3 ohms of primary resistance. We have coils available in this section that work with this unit. To check resistance on your own coil disconnect all wires to the coil. Put each wire from your Ohm Meter to each side of the coil and read the resistance. Do not eliminate the ballast resistor if the measurement is below 3 ohms. Read instructions carefully when installing. Much better than points. This is a great alternative.

Datsun Distributor Heavy Duty Wire Set - Blue

The standard in the automotive industry is that if a wire set is made of only 7 percent silicone the manufacturer can call it a silicone wire set. Our heavy duty distributor wire sets are made of 100 percent silicone wire with braided silicone wire & silicone boots.
NOTE: These custom, exclusively made for Datsunparts.com, wires are made to the correct length as per the original Nissan cylinder positions on the distributor cap. Lengths were calculated with the #1 wire in the 11:00 position when looking down at the distributor cap from the passenger side of the car. If your distributor point cam or drive gear, below the distributor housing, are 180 degrees out then simply switch either of these parts 180 degrees from their current position to achieve the correct #1 position on the distributor cap. Firing order is 1-3-4-2.

Instructions for flipping distributor point cam 180 degrees: Remove the two screws that hold the vacuum advance in place and lift the vacuum advance arm off the pin on the breaker plate. Remove the two screws that hold on the breaker plate and the distributor cap indexing hooks. Take note that the hooks are different. This last instruction does not apply to later distributors with the hook attachment points on the distributor housing main body. Spread the points open to lift off the breaker plate. Loosen the screw in the center point cam and lift out the point cam. You are going to turn this point cam 180 degrees from its prior position and re-assemble. But first. If you have a 7.5 cam, flip the two springs to the opposite distributor advance weight. Be careful with the springs so you don't break or stretch them. If necessary clean and lube the shaft and all the pivoting point etc of these moving parts.Reassemble all the parts. Your # 1 lead is now in the 11:00 o'clock position.
