Ah, what's a dizzy? Sometimes when I stand up too quickly, I get one.
As cheap and readily available as Bosch and Marelli distributors are, what's the point in using a BMW distributor?

If you have an old Shankle catalog, they sold a Bosch whizzy. Can't find my catalog, but had detailed curve info for their version, like i had on my rot rod 72 spider.

The 123 distributor has a bunch of selectable curves and I have tried a few of them. The Bosch 0231 110 045 is a good one. It was original on Euro 2L Spiders. The more common 0231 178 006 is rather docile and it gives less mid-range power and worse fuel consumption. The Shankle curve is very good except that it is hard to get a good idle, at least with Weber equipped cars.
