I didn't know this was available.

Here's another idea. What about taking the guts out of a later model, watercooled distributor, say from an mid to late 80's A2 Golf/Jetta, and adapting it to the aircooled distributor housing. If the parts would fit, you would end up with a vacuum/mechanical advance electronic distributor (no points to fiddle with). I'll have to get my hands on an A2 Golf/Jetta 8v distributor and see what is what.
Why go to all that work? Look for an '83.5-'85 WBX Vanagon distributor -- NOT the '86-and-up. Has
the dual advance, has the electronic ignition, already fits our engines.
I'll say it again: NOT the '86-and-up Vanagon distributor. Those have *NO* advance mechanism *at* *all* -- advance on those is controlled by the FI ECU.
