Where exactly does the 09 originate? Was it a vw used dizzy at one time? And I mean was it used in the 60s and earlier on German produced vw's, not in the 70s in Brazil and Mexico.How did it become so prolific and not the 10 or the 19? I thought the 10 and 19 were populr with the big motor crowd and considered better.
I'm not sure where it originates, but IIRC it has a connection to aircooled industrial engines from Brazil. I suspect that the "current" 009 actually predates the 010 and 019 .. which would explain why the 010 and 019 are in the Fisher book and the 009 isn't. The 010/019 seems to be preferred by quite a few of the big-motor crowd over on the cal-look.com forum, and for what it's worth I've seen 010's at swapmeets going for around $100-125.
