"Pertronix 1 SVDA" Distributor, 12 VOLT, D186504
Product photo shows Pertronix SVDA with the INCLUDED Pertronix Points Replacement Device. Distributor O-ring is Included with this unit.


 

"Pertronix 1 SVDA" Distributor, 12 VOLT, D186504 is an economical option for people that do not have the $ for a Genuine Aircooled.Net SVDA! This distributor works on 12V Electricals, and there are no options for induction used. This distributor is a clone of the Bosch 034 Distributor.

This distributor comes WITH the Pertronix Brand Flamethrower I Points Replacement Device pre-installed! 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.

If you are installing a PERTRONIX DISTRIBUTOR and/or FlameThrower Electronic Points Device, please note and make sure you meet the following Coil and Plug Wire Compatibility Requirements:

Pertronix SVDA (12V) Distributor with Flamethrower 1 Electronic Points Device -- can only be used/run with a 3.0 OHM Coil and Pertronix recommends NON-metal core plug wires.

Both coil and wires are sold separately from this item. See related products below for compatible coil and plug-wire 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 1 SVDA comes with the Original Flamethrower I 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. When you buy this unit you will get an email with our detailed installation instructions, and Pertronix's 2 year Manufacturer's warranty.

1 of 5 Refused to honor warranty July 29, 2021
Reviewer: Tim Baisden from Canton, GA United States  
Lasted a few months.  Left me stranded on side of the road.  When I contacted Pertronix, Mitchel Yardley the Customer Service person was unprofessional and uncooperative.  So far this distributor has cost me nearly $300 (including towing fee) and I still have to replace it.

5 of 5 INSTANT FIX TO MY HESITATION FLAT SPOT!!!!!!!!!!!! June 25, 2019
Reviewer: Bill in NJ from brick, NJ United States  
I had a problem. John had the knowledge and the solution. Contacted Aircooled.net about a very dangerous situation that the previous owner passed onto me. I had a Not So Fine, UH OH NINE with a Brosol Solex 30/31 vacuum carburetor on a single port 1600. I emailed John and he advised me to go with this SVDA distributor.

WOW! Now I can take off like normal and the engine runs much smoother and cooler. Looking forward to working with Aircooled.Net in the future when I build the "real" engine for my beautiful Vdub.  THANK YOU SO MUCH TO JOHN AND EVERYONE AT AIRCOOLED.NET. You made driving my VW GREAT AGAIN!!

5 of 5 SVDA Flamethrower I Distributor June 6, 2017
Reviewer: John Strowbridge from Crawfordville, FL United States  
I have totally rebuilt my engine.
Fidgeting with the original 205Q and another I bought off the web was a lot of time and money wasted. I had it running pretty well with the original 205Q and a dual vacuum NOS can but when I broke down and went with this unit the 'driveability" went through the roof.  Much better starting, good warm up and smoother driving under every condition. Money well-spent. This is the way to go.

5 of 5 Very nice setup - Working fine with 30 PICT 1 October 22, 2015
Reviewer: Warren Allred from Alpine, CA United States  
I was in a pinch and this was all I could get in a hurry and even with caveats from the Internet experts that it would not work with my stock 1967 1500 with the 30 PICT 1 it is working very well.
