    My ignition coil inside the distributor died a month ago. It cost me $170 to replace the coil. But now the bearing seal is giving in and oil leaks inside the distributor and down my motor. The seal kit costs about $20 plus labor. I see these after market distributors online for $60 and up. A used OEM one is hard to find but once found, I don’t know how much life left for the coil inside. So I am looking to by a whole new after market one. But the CB7 is picky about the distributor part. It seems more cost effective to buy a whole new part since I could do this myself saving the labor cost. The only thing left is to ignition time it, which I have the gun. I worked on this car before but time is limited now so I bring it to my trusted mechanic. But I want to save some money but I don’t want to buy a distributor and it fails or not work right and wasting more time and effort. Any input on which one I could buy?
    Thanks.

    My understanding is that many Honda’s do not play well with aftermarket dizzys.
    Finding a new unit can be a treasure hunt and be costly.
    Have you tried looking for a rebuild kit for the OEM unit?
    Might be cost effective to just to completely rebuild it .

    I tried looking but they are over $200 used OEM. The least expensive is $150 but who knows how long the ignition module still have life left? That’s the main component of the dizzy.
