On carbureted cars and early injectors, an interrupter-distributor is used. It generates a low volt pulse to generate a spark that ignites the air / fuel mixture. This unit is called a distributor because it emits constant vibration. If you own a car from the 90s and your car is misfiring, then consider our review of the best distributor manufacturers, which will help you choose proven products. The material is based on customer reviews and the assessment of our experts in the field of auto / motorcycle technology.
Rating of the best distributor manufacturers
|rating of the best distributor manufacturers||1||Bosch||5.0|
The German manufacturer ranked first in our review has a huge range of auto parts. Despite the ever-changing technology, the company does not forget about the old models released since the mid-80s. In the catalog, you can even now buy distributors for Toyota King, Audi 80 and others. The concern makes sure that the design of the part is preserved in its original form, which is 100% suitable for these machines. After replacing the distributor, the errors '0300' and '0303', issued by the on-board computer, disappear forever.
Although the Bosch concern has many factories and some of them produce spare parts in China, it is the valve covers with runners that the company makes in Japan. This is confirmed by both the photo with reviews from buyers and information on the official website. The design is distinguished by clear shapes and accurate molding, it is very easy to install in cars and allows you to fine-tune the operation of the power plant. If you are looking for high quality at an affordable price, then consider this manufacturer.
- there is a separate version without armored wires (so cheaper);
- the revolutions are leveled;
- the effect of 'triplet' of the internal combustion engine is eliminated;
- the arrow stops twitching at idle;
- cravings increase.
- the assembled distributor is cheaper than the rubber bands from the oil to it separately;
- some remain unstable XX.
The second place belongs to the manufacturer from France. The Valeo concern was founded in 1923 and produces about 25,000 unique spare parts. The company simultaneously thinks both for the owners of new vehicles and for cars that are about 30 years old. For the latter, the manufacturer offers ignition coils, candles, distributors, armored wires, modules. The production is carried out in the USA, Tunisia, South Korea, Mexico, Germany and Spain. Back in 1984, the manufacturer became the world's largest manufacturer of ignition systems. Judging by the reviews of motorists, the distributors of the French company are also suitable for other cars, in which the fastening is carried out through a plug and nut for 13.
When cars of the 1980-1990s were produced, Valeo supplied distributors directly to the conveyor for many German concerns. That is why, with the “ native '' breaker, the cars worked out 300,000 km of run without any problems. If you are the owner of a German car of those years, then the Valeo ignition distributor will be original and will last as long as the previous one.
- more than 120 factories around the world;
- the same quality requirements, regardless of the country of manufacture;
- ISO 9001, 14001, 16949, OHSAS 18001 certificates;
- clear marking on the case protects against counterfeiting.
- after 150,000 km, the distributor shaft is loose;
- high price;
- Every month it is required to drip oil onto the bushing for it to work properly.
The third position belongs to the manufacturer from South Korea. His products come in blue packaging with yellow stripes. All details indicate Made in Korea. The company's catalog contains distributors for KIA, Hyundai, Daewoo and other cars that have been produced since 1998 with carburetor engines. The vacuum regulator is built into the body and allows you to change the ignition timing based on the engine speed. But it is quite difficult to adjust it yourself and you will have to contact the master. The runner with a baffle plate rotates easily, distributing voltage to the candles. The distributor cover fits exactly the old car models.
We added the manufacturer to our review because he managed to create an elongated distributor, due to which the contact group is less covered with carbon deposits. Reviews show that even with intensive use of the car, there is no coke inside the distributor, so the car does not 'troit', and the spark does not disappear.
- the body is well painted;
- Longer inlet for better mixing of fuel and air, as well as spark supply;
- dips in engine operation are eliminated;
- the 'fingers' stop clanging.
- harder to adjust the spark;
- weak capacitors – may explode.
And here is another manufacturer located in Germany. The brand originated in 1927 and produced spark plugs. Now it is one of the world leaders in the manufacture of electrics for cars. The company cooperates directly with car factories BMW and VAG. The company's products are traditionally painted red, which serves as additional protection against counterfeiting. For cars produced in 1988-1995, the manufacturer offers distributor covers, ignition modules, runners and coils. Ignition distributors are distinguished by their sensitive adjustment and are able to adjust the operation of the internal combustion engine to a quiet rumble without jumps at idle speed. If you install a distributor together with high-voltage wires of this brand, then the owner will generally forget about the problems of starting the engine from the side of the low-voltage pulse formation system.
We consider the manufacturer to be the best because of the long service life of its distributors. Often in the reviews, buyers share that the breaker works for 250-300 thousand km. The runner rarely wedges and almost does not dangle. Owners note a stable spark and smooth engine operation.
- own research centers;
- increased resource of parts;
- cooperation with VAG and BMW;
- 95% positive feedback.
- there are many fakes on the market;
- high price.
Next in our review is the manufacturer Denso. The company began its journey in 1949 and now it owns about 60 enterprises in 23 countries of the world for the production of automotive products. The company actively cooperates with Japanese manufacturers Toyota and Lexus, therefore, under the hood you can find parts with the inscription 'Denso', which are original for Toyota. The most popular products of this company are candles, which are of high quality. But the distributors related to the ignition system also work stably, although they are less in demand due to the reduction in the number of cars to which they fit.
We consider the manufacturer to be the best because its distributors provide an increased spark gap. This is a special technology patented by the company. This gives the fuel additional time for complete combustion, and the ignition zone becomes larger. The increased flame front gives more power to the internal combustion engine and produces less toxic exhaust.
- products comply with QS9000 and ISO 9001 certificates;
- the power of the car is significantly increased;
- vibration transmitted to the body is reduced;
- The internal combustion engine works stably, regardless of when it is started (just or has already warmed up).
- high price;
- more difficult to buy – not every city has Denso distributors available.
Our review is completed by a manufacturer from Lithuania. The Sfec brand is relatively young and appeared in 2000. The company has 22 product groups and more than 4,000 spare parts. The firm has clutches, brake components, shock absorbers, steering and electrical equipment. All products comply with ISO TS 16949: 2002. In addition, the goods undergo control in order to fall under the regulations of the 'Customs Union' TR CU 018/2011. The range is designed for GM, Chrysler, Mazda, BMW, VW, Audi and others. Tramblers are produced for passenger cars 1985-2000. Reviews show that the ignition distribution interrupters in the box may be from various lesser-known companies (Sfec acts as a packer), but the quality remains decent and the part will last 200,000 km.
We added the company to our review, because this manufacturer provides comprehensive spare parts to service stations in the Baltic States and Eastern Europe. Such activity in itself testifies to acceptable quality and optimal price, otherwise car services would not cooperate with it.
- attractive cost;
- no critical backlash;
- the distributor cover fits snugly to the body and does not release vapors;
- precise adjustment marks on the bottom bar.
- die-cast aluminum body has burrs and shells;
- for accurate adjustment, a special stand is needed, which is not available in every city;
- there are no models for carburetor trucks.
