The 123\B18-B20-R-V is designed for the Volvo B18 and B20 engines, not only for classic cars as the Amazone, P1800 etc. but also for trucks and boats, Volvo Penta.
It has advance-curves for B18-A (VALP), B18-B, B20-A, B20-B, B20-D, B20-E, B20-F, B18-Penta & B20-Penta engines.
The unit offers optimised LPG / Ethanol-curves for B20-A en B20-E engines. With a switch you can easily choose the advance-curve that is specified for your specific engine. The unit offers a built-in LED for easy static timing and several different advance-curves. This is a great feature for easy fine-tuning your engine!
It also offers:
- vacuum advance
- automatic dwell
- spark balancing
- automatic power-cut after 1 second
- gear shift retard
- etc. etc.
For electronic fuel injection-systems (where the engine needs a trigger pulse from the ignition) a 123\B18-B20-R-V-IE is available.
Please read the installation manual carefully. It contains more information on the motor- and distributor numbers, static timing and the advance-curves, the specifications of the 123-ignition and a step-by-step description of the installation procedure.
Although used coils all look alike, they should be viewed with suspicion since one cannot tell from the outside whether, and how often they were exposed to overheating in the past. Installing the 123 Ignition system will ensure that the coil will never be overheated again in future. We recommend the Bosch Blue Coil.
Perhaps you'll also need new sparkplugs? At Leen APK's we recently added the sparkplugs most commonly used in combination with the 123ignitions we offer. See: the sparkplugs list.
