The ignition rotor in the distributor assembly used on the S14 and M20 engines is driven off the front of a camshaft. The sole purpose of the distributor is to distribute the high energy ignition from the ignition coil to the spark plugs. Aside from the distributor cap and rotor there are no additional ignition components located within the distributor housing. The distributor housing serves only as a mounting surface for the distributor cap.
