Distributor Question

Post by Westy1 on Wed Aug 30, 2017 10:37 pm

Hi people been following the group for a while but this is first time for posting hope I don’t make mess of it. I have a question about the Distributor on my Camper.
1999 Hijet 993 EFI petrol engine, had to get under a few days ago to check exhaust and found rubber pipe about 30cm long just hanging down from the body of the Distributor open end has a clip on suggesting it should be attached to something.
Engine is running fine been over to the Lake District a few times and North York Moors recently (I live in the Teesside area of the UK so decent mileage.)
Anybody any ideas please going to attempt to put a picture up.Thanks,  hope the link works   Sorry can't get photo up try again

Westy 1? Hope you are not going to turn out to be a little Terrier. The moulded pipe you have found is there to let out any moisture that forms in the Distributor when the engine cools down and as a breather.
So panic ye not. It is supposed to be like that. If you look closely you will see that the end of the rubber moulding is blocked and there is a small square hole in the side of the moulding - unless some twerp has cut the bottom of the pipe off.

Morning, thanks Woodie at 5ft 4" I am little and been called worse than a terrier HaHa.
But that is not the pipe I was meaning I sussed that one, The pipe I'm looking at is on the metal body of Distributor as it goes into engine block not the cap.thanks again I need to get uploading photos sorted. https://ibb.co/fb2jj5

you need to post the BBCode not the direct link
when you view a picture there are a couple of codes you can copy on the bottom of the page.
copy the BBCode one for full image (not thumbnail)  and paste it here

thats the way i post pictures from my oldskool pc, it could be different when using tablet or phone Neutral

From Scotia's picture and mine It appears to be a breather pipe once again. The metal pipe is not connected to anything in the Distributor as in a mechanical advance /retard mechanism as most distributors had years ago.

Yes, it is FAR easier using a Tablet Scotia. Even I can do it. Haven't got a clue what you were describing and I wonder if Westy would either. Posting pictures on my Laptop was dreadful hit and miss experience. Utterly archaic system.

than copy bbcode and paste the link on the forum


like i said it could look different when using phone or tablet.

It's just this Old Fossil then obviously Scotia with a wierd blend of old and new technology. Seems like Westy although 15 years older than me does undoubtedly understand. But I have never owned a tower computer and separate keyboard so can I please be excused?
I just know that it was a real pain with my Sony Laptop to try and post ANY pictures.

yeah i dont know why they just couldnt make one layout or one simple way of posting pictures.
its difficult, and especialy when using different divices and trying to explain to somebody who uses a different device.
