Title: Digital programmable distributor
Post by: Anders Dinsen on March 29, 2020, 12:37:08 pm
Hi all,

Flickr user and Murena 1.6 owner Quentin Boullier (https://www.flickr.com/photos/64806443@N05/) posted pictures today showing a programmable digital distributor with bluetooth interface from 123Ignition in the Netherlands. Complete with an Android or iPhone app it appears to be a direct replacement for Ducellier distributors like those our cars are using. See this link, for example: https://flic.kr/p/2iJAfWG

This seems to be the product he is installing:

http://123ignition.nl/product.phtml?id=127

It looks very interesting, I think. For example it includes immobilizer, rev limiter and complete monitoring. The only thing I can think of it could be missing is a programmable knock sensor input. But that's a small thing and would probably be too difficult to set up to be useful. Anyone here who have tried or heard anything about this?

Best,
Anders

Yes my brother has this setup in his Traction Avant and I think one of his CX's. What it claims to do its does.

The biggest issue is making sure you can get some up front help from the seller or get on a good forum. At first glance they are not as intuitive as they seem but it is akin to giving an IPhone to an Android user or vice versa. Once you understand the logic no issues. As for the quality its very good with fit and finish being high. Its a long term investment to my mind.

Not much else to say, with in 10 mins you get a good working advance curve but you could spend days on there perfecting it its up to you.

To my mind not really, around 250-300 but they have offers on every so often. A new Bosch dizzy is around 100-200 for my brothers Traction it was going to be higher. And a standard dizzy is just that, with non of the 123 benefits

Thanks for your input, guys :)

Monseiur Boullier got his car running and posted this video on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kwu4bkpy3Vs

I agree the price is fair, considering the features. It should be possible, though, to restore any distributor. Especially as the Murena has electronic ignition and inductive pickup. Picture is from when I took my spare distrubutor apart 12 years ago :)

I hope that photo is before the completion of the distributor rebuild!  The shaft has a groove, and the bush is locked to the shaft by a small key 'rod' which in the photo is lying on the top of the bush, and the bush is out of alignment with the shaft as can be seen by the bush groove being rotated anti-clockwise from the shaft groove.
