I asume that is a 1.4 engine?

I'm not all to knowledgable on the 1.4 but I would think you could use the later dizzy and renix?

hi there

Ive been looking into this myself

As far as Im aware there isnt such a system for the 1.4 340 although conversions do exsit for the 140s, 120s and earlier 240s.

Conversion to renix would need the whole distributor unit replaced ( the complete unit which runs off the camshaft ) and installtion of the control unit. However, the bell housing doesnt have the hole for the flywheel sensor. Im 80% sure of this but will check my 83 340 when I get a chance for you.

There is a company called 123 ignition which I believe offer the sort of thing you are looking for. Its an aftermarket ignition system which is programmable. You'll need the ignition maps, Ive got those for the B14 3E and others if that helps. I think your 1981 would have a 3E engine since my 1980 343 has a 3E engine too.

look forward to hearing from you

shimon
Enjoy your 300s

I remember there being some sort of conversion called 'Lumenition' or something, although I'm not sure they have it for 300s.

BTW sorry to be nit-picky but please try not to type in capitals on forums cos it looks like you're shouting. I'm sure you didn't mean to :)

hi,

123 ignition ( dutch company ) dont make a system for the 340 but their system is set up to work with older type coils unlike egasquirt which needs a bosch unit. 123's system is IC controlled and programmable by them. looking at their products it seems they are already well versed with pre 1970 volvo ignition maps

are you having probs getting parts, condensor, breakers etc for your 81 340??

look forward to hearing from you

cheers andy, yep i remember luminition too... i'll have a look to see what their product is like..
Enjoy your 300s
