Does anybody make a distributor that will work in my 3-cyl engine totally independent from the computer?? I am looking to find a way to completely ditch the computer..I would like to run a low pressure 'dumb' carburettor, non-computerized distributor and have a simple car..I know it sounds like heresy, but I'm looking to get back to basics. Thanks!

why not toss a points distributor and a mechanical fuel pump while you're at it :roll:



get a mk1 distributor, I think it's exactly what you're looking for.

those should have weights and springs under the breaker plate, too, and i think that the dizzy module on the mk2 directly fires the coil.

Hello, I'm planning to be replace my distributor with a distributorless ignition, using Coil-On-Plug.
Of course it will have a microprocessor to control it.
But it would work independent of the existing ECU, so it'd work with a carb, etc.
Are others interested in such a setup?

Definitely interested. Would prefer to fire COP with a MSII, is that the controller you plan on using?

I won't be using MegaSquirt, but one of my Microprocessors boards.
I have maybe hundreds (at least dozens) of MSP430 micro boards I designed for wireless control of R/C cars.
I closed the business and now just have them surplus.
So I will use one of these as the brains. I will need to create an daughter board to handle firing the coils,
and read the vaccum sensors.
I think they may even sell such a board for the MS, but its not a complicated thing, just need to handle the voltage spikes.

what do you plan to use as a trigger if you remove the distributor?
