Default Vac Advance - dist. 77FJ40

Robbie informed me that the diaphragm on the vac advance on my dizzy has a hole in it. Looks like that part has been discontinued by Toyota. I'll search for used part.

BUT...should I just look for a whole re-man'd dizzy from Downey or Marks? Other options?? It's for the 40.

thanks!

Default need help from someone with a 77...

So, I think I tracked down a used one from Proffitts...and I'm not anywhere near the cruiser. with the 77, does that have two vac ports or just one?

I realize there could be some goofy PO stuff going on...but wondering what that setup usually looks like.

ANd Man! these things are as rare as hen's teeth!

I'd pull it and go with an fj60 electronic coil/ignitor and dizzy... never look back! Points suck and I saw a significant jump in my MPG's with this mod.

Default I've got the pertronix drop in...

...to eliminate those damn points (I'm also and air-cooled guy and adjust those damn points twice a year).

so, I might go that route if'n the vac advance is unobtainium. I think I'd have to get a new side cover to go with the 60 dizzy...is that true?

yes you need the side cover to account for that big honkin dizzy.

Points rock. along with single masters and replaceable oil cartridges. Don't look ahead look back

Order from nardek. 5 some years ago I got a carb and dizzy in a week and shipping was less than sor. Vac advance is out there you just need to find one. Does jim c have any or source in the states?

Default well, Jim C. must be busy

I haven't heard back from Jim C. after several emails and vmails - I know he can tough to get to sometimes. I got a reply back from Nardek, I think that's the direction I'll be going in.

Jeremiah might have a used one, I just need to know if that pod has two vac ports or just one for my 77.

I pm you a while ago, single port is what you want. If you go with the 60 stuff, you will need the side cover
