The 123/FIAT-2R is designed especially for Fiat 500- and Fiat 126-engines. It comes as a complete distributor. Just like the 123/FIAT, it will do away with wear: no more replacement of points or capacitor EVER again. The advance is now electronically calculated: set it, and forget it!

The 123/FIAT-2R is designed especially for Fiat 500- and Fiat 126-engines. It comes as a complete distributor, with a mounting-bracket. The advance is now electronically calculated: set it, and forget it! The unit offers a built-in LED for easy static timing.

All other systems of electronic ignition for FIAT require that the original mechanical centrifugal advance system is still fitted, points assisted systems even use the original points operating cam which suffers uneven wear and consequent lumpy running of the engine because each cylinder has its own inaccurate ignition timing. Furthermore they all require a separate box for the associated electronics.

This construction of all the electronics inside an almost original distributor means that there are no unusual wires and connectors leading to a 'box of tricks' (other types of electronic ignition have that) which has to be mounted somewhere!

So much better than a conventional contact breaker set up because the variable dwell angle ensures a large spark at high engine revolutions, with 'points' and of course points assisted 'electronic ignition' the dwell angle, controlled by the points gap, remains constant so at high revolutions the coil has insufficient charging time. 123ignition addresses the problem of dwell angle in the basic model other makes demand that you buy the 'sports' version for such performance!

So how can 123ignition make an engine smoother?
A typical 'FIAT-problem' is the slightly different ignition timing obtained on each cylinder because of wear or irregularities on the contact breaker cam, 123ignition properly addresses this problem in 2 ways, firstly the cam is removed and secondly that even if the two magnets were not evenly spaced the software within 123ignition converts it into perfect timing.

Additionally, because the 'centrifugal' advance is now handled by complex software (all within the one simple module) acceleration is unbelievably smooth but particularly so in slow running in traffic, (from 1000rpm to 3000rpm) this is far better than with conventional ignition.

- Simple installation without mechanical adaptations
- Smoother engine torque curve
- No maintenance ever again!
- Variable dwell angle to prevent low speed overheating of ignition coil and better spark at all speeds
- Better starting
- Better emissions
- Better fuel consumption
- 16 different advance-curves, ideal for tuning purposes
- No burning out of the ignition coil (after stopping the engine power is cut to the coil after 1 second!)
- Built in LED for simple static ignition timing

REAL value for your money!

Please read the installation manual carefully. It contains more information about the motor- and distributor numbers, static timing and the advance-curves (often found on the last page), the specifications of the 123-ignition 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.

Alles bestens, gern wieder

Eingebaut, eingestellt und gestartet.
War ein Kinderspiel.

A Quality Product

My Fiat 500 had a cracked distributor pedestal which was knocking the timing off. This was causing hard starting and the occasional misfire. When the piece finally broke, I bit the bullet and decided to upgrade to the 123Ignition system. I could not be happier. From first impressions you get the feeling this is a well engineered piece of kit. The installation itself is very straightforward and having run it for a week, the hard starting and misfiring issues have been completely rectified. I would agree with some other reviewers that the instructions could be a bit more detailed. For example, I don’t know what the benefits of the “idle control” setting are, so my car is running the standard “0” curve. However, I doubt it has run this smoothly in years! I would certainly recommend this product.

Up n running

Recently fitted a 123 ignition to my fiat 500(650cc out of a 126).amazing difference to the old accuspark one (found the distributor was shot. I can drive further out now confident of its reliability.many thanks for a brilliant piece of kit

123 ontsteking

Na het plaatsen van de elektronisch ontsteking loopt het fiat 500f prima , met natuurlijk een 650cc motor er in . Maar blijkbaar zit er onder de verdeler een schroefje met standen ik vroeg me af wat het beste stand was voor dit 650cc blokje . Nu staat het standaard zou hij beter presteren aks ik het hoger zet . Op 1of 2 of 3 of maakt het geen verschil . Super

Working well

Easy to fit and set up, then fine tune with a strobe timing light. My FIAT 500R is running smoothly through the RPM range.

Great product

Excellent quality, easy to install and my Fiat 500F is starting and running much better.

Werkt super, de fiat 500 voelt als herboren en de instalatie was makkelijk!!

Zündung funktioniert perfekt

Zündung ist genau wie beschrieben und der Einbau nach der Anleitung sehr einfach. Funktioniert sehr gut und Motor läuft ruhiger als mit der herkömmlichen Zündung. Nach der kurzen Erfahrung kann ich die Zündung weiterempfehlen.

Überraschend genaue Zündung

Perfekte Zündung, einfache Montierung, einziges Problem: den Drehschalter für verschiedene Kurven kann man nur sehr schwer oder gar nicht umstellen. Beim Umstellen wird die Kunststoffschraube gefaehrdet.

Binnen een uur geïnstalleerd op m'n Fiat 126 (bj.1980), werkte meteen.
En ik ben nog wel a-technisch op brandstofmotoren gebied.
Ben nu mooi van die contactpuntjes af.

sehr nette kontakte

Ich habe den 123Fiat Pulus sehr schnell per post bekommen. Er funktioniert einfach super. kann ich jedem 126/500 er fahrer empfehlen.
der service ist absolut 1A. sehr nette kontakte.
