Default reluctor wheel on distributor

what exactly is it? I remember a while back jason parker said that that's the only thing that is different between obd0 and obd1, so I'm trying to put the obd1 part into the obd0 distributor. is it the part attached to the shaft that has 16 splines on obd0 and only 1 spine in a spiral type thing on the obd1 dizzy?

well ----, I think you're wrong dustin. on both obd0 and obd1 there's the spiral thing and a 4 point kinda spiral thing, then there's the multi spoke wheel, 16 splines on obd0 and 24 splines on obd1. that wheel is larger on obd1. the shaft that all those spirals and wheels are on is longer on obd1 and the mounting points on the distributor body are different. on both the 4 point wheel's sensor have wht/blu and org/blu wires, on obd0 the multi-splined wheel's sensor has org and wht wires and the sprial's sensor has blu/grn and blu/yel wires; on obd1 the multi splined wheel has blu/grn and blu/yel wires and the spiral's sensors have org and wht wires.

The reluctor wheel is teh spinny piece witht he slines. I don't remember the count. As far as OBD0 vs OBD1 distributors, ya, that's the only difference. It sends a different count to the ECU and the ECU will fire wrong if it's not getting the correct signal.

Ya but sometimes there are things you just dont skimp on, and trying to swap the internals of a D-series obd1 distributor inside of a older style Obd0 b16a distributor just sounds hack. Just from me glancing at the inside of distributors I can already tell you it's not going to work.

I might have a obd1 ls dizzy that would work.

the internals are crazy close. the obd1 shaft is longer by .35 mm (measured with my digital caliper), but the problem is where the wheels are placed on the shaft. I'ma pm you about that ls unit right now.
