The Hitachi is stock on the 4whl drives. The nippo denso I believe came on 2whl drives. The nippo supposedly has a faster vacuum advance that gives a slight bit more lower end power. I think you would really be splitting hairs. I would just get which ever is most reasonably priced if you are buying the whole distributor.

You really cant mix and match coils and distributors though...or so i heard.  If you do a nippo...make sure to get the coil too.  In the end you wont be really gaining anything going nippo.  If the advance is faster you wont notice it.

I don't think the coil knows what distributor you have really. As long as the ohms resistance matches.

I am having the same issue. I did some research to try and find one that would interchange but decided im going to get it rebuilt. I heard this place was good at it but haven't tried them out yet. I read they can rebuild the vacuum advance or the whole distributor.

Besides that there is a thread on here about rebuilding the vacuum advance your self somewhere. If i can find it ill link it.

I think i mis-remembered about the coil thing.  Its aftermarket coils that kill the factory distributors.  Thats what it was.  I had that happen to me once upon a time.
