How does the 123ignition work for your classic Mercedes 4 and 6 cylinder?

In the design of a 123ignition distributor, all mechanical parts such as contact points, centrifugal weights, springs, bearings and the vacuum membrane have been replaced by only one rotating part: the central shaft with rotor.

This shaft is mounted on top and bottom in a bronze bush and halfway is an oil seal. The computer in the 123ignition provides the correct advance and the optimum ignition angle at different speeds. This gives you a maximum strong spark at every speed with your new distributor.

The parts used to set the timing of the 123 ignition are not subject to wear and tear! Once properly adjusted, you don't have to worry about it anymore.

A small switch behind the Allen screw in the housing allows you to select the correct ignition curve for your engine. The advance curves are pre-programmed in the 'switch' version of the 123ignition.

The 123ignition 6-R-V fits: W108, W109, W110, W111, W112, W113, W114, W123 and W130 6-cylinder engines. These engines are used in the 220, 230, 230S, 230SL, 250, 250SL, 250SE, 250CE, 280, 280S, 280SE, 280SL, 300SE, 300SEL and 300SE models.

For the M110 engine we have a special, for convenience 123ignition M110 6-R-V-IE. The 123 ignition 4-R-V fits the W110, W115 and W123 engines. These engines are used in the 190C, 200, 220, 220US, 230, 309 and 409 models.

We often hear from users with a classic Mercedes that the engine has started to run more smoothly, more evenly and quieter. People with a delivery van are happy with the increased reliability. With the 6-cylinder engines it is also often mentioned that the torque increases somewhat.
