Options for converting L-series engine to Electronic Ignition include:

  • Option 1: Buy a single-point distributor, swap it in, convert to Pertronix. Cost $70 + cost of the distributor.
  • Option 2: Good for DIY person in USA: Buy a Datsun matchbox distributor, swap it in. It can use the stock coil you already have. Cost $30 from pick-n-pull. From 1979 Datsun 620, 1980 Datsun 720, 1979 Datsun 510 or 1979 Datsun 200SX (any with L20B engine). Be sure to get the matching pedestal, which does not come with a new distributor. And is different from the L16 pedestal.
  • Option 3: Good for tinkerer/racer/tuner: Install MegaJolt/E, it's a distributorless system with multi-coil pack. Cost about $300.
