I have been running a bosch 009 distributor since 2005 and was happy with it...
or so I thought I was, until I bought and installed a Bosch SVDA Single Vacuum Dual advance Distributor from airCooled.com in the USA.
The difference is simply AMAZING....
My engine starts first time, idles great and is so smooth when taking off... it is truely Amazing.
I could never go back to a 009 Distributor....
The advance is so smooth and I don't need to push the pedal to the floor to go...

So, If You are running a 009 with a single carburetor.... I Recommend the SVDA Dissy.

I also bought the Pertronix kit for the distributor to replace the points, but I haven't fitted that as yet...
[it took Me about a year to fit the SVDA]

I don't like to rush things....

I also fitted a new set of NOS Eagle 8mm spark plug leads.
check out the excellent air seals on the spark plug ends.

Well I'm thinking I may fit the petronix kit to My SVDA today...
I haven't done it previously as the screw holding the points in must have been done
up tight  by a very large person with big muscles and a big handled screwdriver  

cheers

PS: the weather here in Australia is getting cooler now 20C
so, great weather for driving a beetle... can even use the heater if it gets colder... lol
