4wd disty to 2wd disty conversion
Posted 11 January 2004 - 04:39 PM
Anyone done this with a EA82? is it worth doing?
And how complicated is it? Is it just the Cap that I need to replace with the 2wd, or with whole disty?
Is the power advance noticeable?
I gots a hitachi'd EA82

But I think on your EA82 they are the same - I don't think there's a difference at all, since the 2WD and 4WD have the same brand of disty....

One thing on the EA81 2WD disty's - they are a different design - made by NipponDenso, and they fail more quickly than the Hitachi's that were used on the 4WD. This failure is due to the shaft bushings. It's not that the bushings of the distys wear at different rates - its that the design of the Hitachi can handle MUCH more slop in the shaft before replacement is needed. Any perceptibale slop in the ND disty will cause dramatic reduction in power, and tach "jump". I've seen Hitachi's that were functioning seemingly perfect with nearly 1/16" of slop in the shaft.
