First time bus owner: distributor help needed

Asked by Jul 13, 2011 at 04:52 PM about the 1968 Volkswagen Type 2

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Can someone please tell me where the 2 wires go from the bottom of the distributor?
I know one goes to the coil, but which side. The other? Also is it possible this 68
1600 has no regulator?

2 Answers


does the distributor have points or was it switched to electronic? you may not have a regulator if it has an alternator instead of a generator. most alternators have an internal regulator. is an awesome site to check out!


Negative (-) side.
