Why you should change dizzy when doing a multipoint conversion!

Hey all, I been told and told not to change my CFI dizzy on my multipoint setup. But I came across this artical on E-series distributors, and the ultimate conclusion is you have to change it. I just thought I would be of interest for people in my position or doing a converion.

Hope its a help

I have also been told by people that you do not have to,but I have had a look at Multi-Point Distributor and compared it to a CFI Distributor and noticed that the Module's seem to be the same,but the Hall Effect Sensor Rotor's have a differance.So you do not have to change the whole Distributor,but it would be a good idea to change the Hall Effect Sensor and Rotor inside the Distributor IMO !!!

Correct bradford the cfi and mpi have a different cutter plate in the hall effect
If your converting to mpi why not just get a new mpi dist and not have to worry
about it for ages

I think some people are more afraid of pulling their Distributor right out as if it is put back in even by one tooth out,you can never time it right...than just changing a few parts on it???Though people should realise that you still have to know what you are doing to change the Hall Effect Sensor and cutter plate as you called it,as I think you have to have a Pin Punch to remove the Cutter Plate and be very careful not to drop the little Pin into anywhere etc. on removal !!!

Its easy to say that,and to do it if you can easily afford to.Do you know how much a new Distributor is??? I bet they are'nt cheap??? As the rest of the Distributor including Module is the same,which it seems to be...Surely then it is'nt such a bad idea to consider just replacing the CFI Hall Effect Sensor and Cutter Plate with New ones for an MPFI,especially if someone is on a budget IMO.

I rang Ford Spare Parts Today out of curiosity and I have forgotten the exact amount now,but they quoted me over $400.00 for a new MPFI Distributor !!!
