L Series EA82 distributor part #'s

Post by steptoe » Sat Jan 05, 2013 11:46 am

Think I posted before but search is not coming up with it - maybe no replies in it either.

OK to assist the search function:

L Series distributors, L Series dizzys, L Series distys, L Series disty
EA82 distributors , EA82 dizzys, EA82 distys, EA82 disty

a little compilation

All made by Hitachi unless otherwise noted

FWD and 4WD dizzys differed in EA81 MY Series, dunno if case same for L Series

aw shoot, lets start with an EA81 dizzy # 429877500 known as a D4R9
likely a 4WD Brumby 1984 unit without points - electronic module with two pins. Module is shared by .....

22100AA210 known as in factory manuals as D4R84 -19 (4Y03) think it was FWD L Series carby

then there was

22100AA063 known as D4R84-49
Found in 85,86 turbo RX and GLTA, 4 pin internal module, runs off 3 plug ECU and has vacuum advance/ boost retard vacuum canister. Uses a separate knock control box mounted at the side of the glovebox to the frame. Extra screws can be seen with LHS door open on RHD cars.Think it is screw on GH617 cap, GH605 rotor. Coil listed to match this dizzy module is 22433AA041 ex Japan order.

22100AA410 D4P86-01 7304
Think from late 86 onwards 4 plug ECU turbo RX, also 4 plug turbo Vortex, no internal ignition module or advance mechanism, just a pick-up and no vac can

GH623 cap? screw on

22100AA450 D4P86-01 9203
Came out of a 1989 mpfi touring wagon 4WD manual

DENSO BELOW- so different cap and rotors? again !

22100AA390 use a Diamond A coil, come with white round plug, two wires
and have what is rumoured to be two internal ignition modules. Two plastic covers inside say DO NOT REMOVE. Dizzy cap has traditiona; spring clips

86 , 87 4WD wagons carby

Got any more info to add ?

please do

Oh yeah, tis often been said Subaru and Nissan share some stuff , well Nissan distributor part numbers of the same era begin with 22100 !

There are two different versions of the same dizzy to suit the L 4 plug turbo setup. I believe one is earlier, the other later and the computer numbers are different.
They look identical, just the wiring to the 4 pin plug is different.
(have to do the Collingwood fix to interchange them, swap the black and white wires)
L serious, still.
