Razor,

Most common and readily available conversion for iginition is the electronic distributor from an L series EFI engine ie some 280C's, all R30 Skylines.

Remove complete distributor and coil and absolute straight bolt on, by far the easiest and cheapest performance upgrade.

Here's a tip; before removing everything mark them, either with tape on the leads ie no.1, 2 , 3 etc. Mark wires coming from-to the coil ie +, -, and you'll be sweet.

The distributor only goes on one way, when removed you'll notice the notch it sits on, ensure the distributor is aligned accordingly and you'll be fine.

Try 280ZX, I'm not 100% on them though whether they employ an electric dizzy w/module or some other type.

What you're looking for is here in the attched pic.

Notice the black box on the distributor, this is a module, 2 wires come off it and go the coil, black goes to - terminal, blue to + terminal.

Have fun...

how would i know which lead goes to the new distributor as I'm only labelling the cables that goes to the spark plugs and old dizzy.

There's a method but I won't try to describe it here, have a look through the forums for timing, distributor etc.

Basically it involves turning the engine to TDC, placing dizzy on without cap, checking the rotor head is correctly positioned and placing leads on the cap in correct sequence. It's quite simple but unless you're certain of what you're doing, use the method below.

For this exercise mark the new dizzy cap with numbers next to where the respective leads would connect to.

When you transpose this dizzy cap onto your car the numbering sequence will be the same.

Leave the leads on your K connected to the spark plugs ends and simply hook them back up to the respective numbers marked on the new dizzy cap. Follow?

Fit new dizzy in place of the old one (check the rotor head is positioned the same way the old one was prior to removal). Fit dizzy cap on with leads connected and thats the hard part out of the way.
