1956 to August 1957 - the BR9, used with single barrel Solex.  

September 1957 - August 1963 - the BR18.  This use of this distributor corresponds to the change
over to the Zenith 32NDIX, and the earliest of these we've seen is 9/59

September 1963 to 1967 - the 022.  The exact date for this change over is not printed, but is
mentioned in a Porsche bulletin.

Later 912, with split shaft carburetors,  were usually fitted with a vacuum advance distributor, the
061,  that many people converted to regular mechanical advance in later years.  .

In general, restoration includes: Terminal kit, shim kit, point set, condenser, condenser bracket, clip
set, new original spec springs, new damping plate, cleaning, testing with Sun model 404 Distributor
machine (Distributor curve documentation is supplied), assembly, and adjustment for correct advance
