Ashuki distributors, why are they so bad ?

Seeing my numbers after having put my car on a dyno, I though the distributor was in fault... The only brand new one I had was an Ashuki so I've fitted it, then started the engine. Not even surprised knowing they were crap, my dash shown me a beautiful check engine light with the LED flashing 9 times aka, N1 Cyl position sensor (which is absolutely not in the distributor).

Then I decided to take it apart in order to have a clear idea about what's going on in them... It wasn't long before the evident lake of quality of these piece of sh*t jumped into my face.

But first of all, a little reminder. The faulty parts in the Honda ignition system are, the coil, and the module. In the Ashuki ones, they are actually the exact same as the Honda, same manufacturer, same part number !


The problem is elsewhere... The Honda distributor assembly provides the Crank Position Angle sensor and the TDC sensor, they are both HALL effect sensors, which means the gap between the magnetic target and the rotor is extremly important... In the Honda case, the gap is consistant and absolutly flush as you can see.


The Ashuki one, is something else.


And if it's true for the TDC sensor, it's exactly the same for the crankshaft angle sensor as well...

So what I've done, is taking the module and coil from the Ashuki assembly, to put it in my OEM Honda one. And as you can imagine, it worked like a charm...
