OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is TEMPORARILY PAUSED to allow our warehouse staff time to catch up on the shipping and backorder backlog for already received orders in progress.

Our checkout system will re-open on Saturday January 29th at 3:00pm (MST)

You may want to copy and paste to save the items your cart (that includes links back to the items listings) in order to save them, just in case your browser does not. We hope that you will return when our online checkout resumes accepting new orders.

ORDER REQUESTS ARE BEING FULFILLED/SHIPPED as backordered items become available, but many popular products are delayed or in short supply. Restock ETAs for backordered items are often either unavailable, or unreliable. We continue to answer emails as best we can, but we are operating with less than half of our normal staff, so please be patient. Your understanding is appreciated while our company struggles to weather the challenges from Covid-19, and do what we still can to support the aircooled VW hobby.

"Pertronix 3 SVDA" Distributor with built-in Rev Limiter, 12 VOLT (with Flamethrower III points replacement device installed), D7182504

"Pertronix 3 SVDA" Distributor with built-in Rev Limiter, 12 VOLT, D7182504 is the Pertronix SVDA, but with the Pertronix III Ignition Module pre-installed instead of the original Pertronix! This features a variable dwell, and a new digital rev limiter and circuit protection! This circuit will protect the module if you leave the key on with the engine not running, OR if you accidentally wire it backward!

This distributor comes WITH the Pertronix Flamethrower III Points Replacement Device! Build quality is not quite as good as the formerly available ACN SVDA, so you MAY have to disassemble, clean, and lube it to ensure smooth operation. But it is completely warrantied, so no worries there! Distributor O-ring is Included with this unit. This unit is a clone of the Bosch 034 distributor.

Pertronix recommends that you upgrade to a 0.32ohm low impedance coil for best performance. Please note that Petronix distributors with electronic points replacement devices can ONLY be run with NON-metal core plugs wires. See related products below for compatible coil and plug-wire options.

If you are wondering, the Pertronix Flamethrower III module has a couple of advantages over the original Pertronix. First, the Flamethrower III module changes dwell as needed. It also senses when the key is on but the engine is not running, which used to burn out the original Pertronix! The Pertronix III is immune to this annoying problem! The Pertronix III has a digital rev limiter that you can set to the RPM that you feel is best! We believe these features are worth the additional money over the original version of the Pertronix module.

The Pertronix 3 SVDA Distributor, 12 VOLT is designed to run with a low impedance (0.32 ohm) coil for best operation (see related products below for coil options).

Item Features

The combination of centrifugal and vacuum advance give the smoothest performance, a 3-4mpg improvement in your fuel economy on the highway, and a major drop in engine temps on the highway too!

Because we developed this SVDA distributor in the mid/late 1980s, then started selling them in quantity in the late 1990s, it is amazing that it took as long as it did for the copies to show up. This is the best of the copies.

SVDA stands for Single Vacuum Dual Advance (since it has BOTH vacuum and centrifugal advance, that's where the "Dual Advance" comes from). This Pertronix SVDA uses the same cap and rotor as the 009, so you may even have some tune up parts lying around!

This distributor is not custom tailored like our Flagship ACN SVDA, it's a "one model fits all" unit. It is certainly better than any 009, 010, 019, or 050, or other centrifugal only distributor you have. Note that this is designed to work with SVDA compatible induction, ie: FI, 34-3, 34-4, Weber ICT, IDF, Progressive, and Dellorto DRLA carbs.

Don't be a sucker and use that One Size Fits None "Uh-Oh-Nine". We feel the only nice thing about the 009 is it's inexpensive and simple, so it's nice to "keep around" in case you have a distributor problem of some sort.

The Pertronix 3 SVDA comes with the Flamethrower III Points Replacement device PRE INSTALLED.

We have had repeated inquiries about SVDAs for 30 PICT 1 and 30 PICT 2 carbs. There is NO SVDA compatible with the 30-1 or 30-2 carbs, so your options are to either put a stock distributor on, use a 009 (yuck), or put an SVDA on in conjunction with a Single Port compatible 30/31 carburetor, since we have an SVDA for the 30/31.

This is a great deal for an "SVDA" distributor, and it comes with our expertise, detailed instructions (sent by email after purchase), and full 2 year Manufacturer's warranty from Pertronix.
