    Default Elec Ign...?

    SIMCA owning friend asked me about the availability of Electronic Ignition for his 4cyl Aronde. I could only think of the "123" brand mentioned here some time back as being available For Peugeot. Citroen and Renault.
    Any difference between the Ducellier and SEV kits ?

    Default kits

    dont think they are kits so much as a complete new dizzy with the electronic stuff built in ,so you dont have to worry about any worn parts and apparently look standard from the outside ,PUGS,there is a selection of advance curves you can select by adjusting micro switches or something ,pretty much adaptable .

    Since Ducellier, SEV and Paris Rhone were interchangeably fitted (to Peugeot anyway), the only issue should be the drive dogs on the distributors.

    If the drive dogs on the Aronde are the same the 203/403/404 you should be OK.

    123 Ignition have the a rotary switch that allows a number of advance curves to chosen. Some models allow Computer USB connection and roll-your-own advance. I'd go for the Peugeot unit and try a few switch settings.

    It's prudent to fit a dedicated earth wire (2.5mm square copper) between the distributor and coil and not rely on engine block/body earths.

    The 123 Ignition system works well but is very pricey.

    You could also use an electronic distributor off a 505 SR or GR albeit without the choice of advance curves, but at a lesser price.

    If need wiring details I can give them to you and suggest a low cost module to use. I did the conversion to 404.

    Thanks Robmac,
    SIMCA owning mate seems keen on tthe 123 unit. He wants it for his just built Group N racer. The idea of it looking inconspicous appeals.

    That is a real advantage of the 123units. They look very original. At around $550 they are not unreasonably priced.

    My conversion cost me less than $100.

    AF member "Hawk" is a distributor for 123 ignitions. He was of enormous help and bent over backwards getting one to me on very short notice.

    The forum on the 123 site is worth a visit for specifiic questions.
