For ID's until 2/1964 Citroën uses a distributor with vacuum-advance. To replace this you should order this '123/DS-R-V'.

With a switch you can easily choose the advance-curve that is specified for your specific engine. The unit offers a built-in LED for easy static timing and several different advance-curves. This is a great feature for easy fine-tuning your engine!

It also offers:
- Vacuum advance
- Automatic dwell
- Automatic power-cut after 1 second
- Gear shift retard

Other 123ignitions for ID and DS are:

- 123/DS-R
- 123/DS-R-V with vacuum advance
- 123/DV-R for the ID-19B produced from 9-66 until 9-68 with a 'DV' engine
- 123/DS-IE-R to replace the original Bosch ZV11/7 A 3 A distributor

Please read the installation manual carefully. It contains more information on engine- and distributor numbers, static timing and the advance-curves (often found on the last page), the specifications of the 123ignition and a step-by-step description of the installation procedure.

Note: Although used coils all look alike, they should be viewed with suspicion since one cannot tell from the outside whether, and how often they were exposed to overheating in the past. Installing the 123ignition system will ensure that the coil will never be overheated again in future. We recommend the 123 Blue Coil.

Perhaps you'll also need new spark plugs? At 123ignitionshop we recently added the spark plugs most commonly used in addition with the 123ignitions we offer. See: the spark plugs list.

Een veel betere ontsteking voor mijn Traction uit 1955, de motor is vlotter dan voor heen ,en start nu ook als ik dat wil ! een grote vooruitgang , het in bouwen was makkelijker dan gedacht, had ik misschien wel eerder moeten doen ,sta nu niet meer stil onderweg ,en dat geeft rust bij het rijden .
