XJ6 series 2 distributor identification, points model

Hello it’s Carl,

Back after quite some time and I’m on engine number 3
On the 72 S1.

Donor motor is an s2

I need some help identifying the dizzy model as it’s not as obvious as my clearly stamped 22d on the blown motor.

Any help would be appreciated, I think 45D4 or D6, but confirmation would be nice before I get the pertronix kit.

Thanks to all


It’s sort of immaterial, Carl - the Pertronix is sort of ‘omnivorous’. But if a reference is needed the ‘45DM6’ should fit the bill…

Crudely; any xk dist will run any xk engine - it’s more a matter of initial set-ups. And the Pertronix manual should cover the lot…

Thank you Frank,

I have a pertronix on motor number 1 which is a 22d,

But I don’t think it will swap over.

I’m now just going to swap over a Series 3 distributor.

More to come…

That’s what confused me, Carl - original early 4,2 dist was a Lucas 22D6…:slight_smile:

The series 3 dist will of course work whichever xk engine you use…
