Points in a distributor???

Does anyone know where I can find a distributor with either a mechanical advance or , vaccum advance that uses points and condenser?

Is there any other way to be able to get rid of the computer?

Does this MSD system that I keep hearing about use the computer?

I am trying to get rid of all the electronics on my 1300cc engine. I want to make it kind of like the old VW engines.----Simple___

You could take a stock distributor and send it to Mel's Ignition , he can set them up to a simpler wiring to eliminate the computer altogether .

I may be wrong, but i thought the only thing the computer controlled is the stock carb. The computer recieves feedback from water temp, vacumn, and hot water, maybe some other stuff (not sure) and uses this info to run the carb. Go to a weber, pony, mikuni's, I've even seen a rochester on a sami. The distributer is totally self contained vacumn adance unit. No computer input to the distributer

The breakerless portion of the distributor is reliable and only activates the coil. The ECU controls the Carb. Or do you have an EFI engine? Even there I think the dist control is pretty standard, not affected by the ECU.

I just keep a spare dist in a parts box in back with my tools. If it goes out it takes just minuts to replace. Puting in points won't make it simpler, it will have more that can go wrong and lose performance not gain it.

Put on a Weber, Holly/Weber, or Pony carb and the ECU is history.
