I was under the same impression.....i'll find out in the morning.
The guy i deal with at FTG nissan knows i only order parts for the KA, so he couldn't have mixed it up with any other part...i hope.

Ok, genuine from nissan the rotor head (or button as it's more commonly known) is $25.75 and it's part no. is 22157-54CO1, distributor cap is $30.75 and it's part no. is 22162-30ROO.
These items only need to be inspected every 20,000km (if i remember correctly) and only need to be replaced if cracking occurs in the cap. I would replace both of these at the same time, and every 50,000-100,000kms.
I think its cured my slight misfire at idle.

the rotor button, like flogtara said, fires the plugs by rotating at camshaft speed and touches the metal contacts in the distributor cap.
i'll post a pic of my old rotor button cos that was stuffed.

Ultratune tried to sell me a new rotor button and distributor cap for $185.00  I said nup ill do it myself.  They also said they'd put new leads on for $160.00 I also told them to "eat a dick"

I'll be doing some shopping before i buy my new ones.  I need new 1's soon and probably get it all done with the new mods coming, but god twin spark hits u in the back pocket a bit mroe than single!

ive replaced my rotor button and its not missing at idle now.  but i was told the reason for the old one burning up was because of dodgy leads, which makes sense because i dont think mine have ever been replaced... they have now :)

On the topic of Dizzy Caps....Between it and the engine, there is a very thin rubber seal, or washers that sits neatly in there. Mine is cracked and oil is slowly, and in very small amounts dripping out. Anyone know where I can pick another one of these up from??? Just the washer that is? Cause I got a new cap, and it didnt have one in there!

Mitza I'm having that same problem, but the stretched seal is only the result of a leaking oil seal somewhere else in the head. I'm thinking the oil seal that separates the head & distributer assy? You'll need to replace this first, THEN replace the dizzy seal, else you'll just continue to have repeats of the problem.

I don't know the part number, but when I did try and get a Bosch distributor cap the Bosch catalogue was wrong,  the cap that was listed in the catalogue was about half the size of the right one, and the listing for the rotor button was wrong as well :o  I couldn't find a bosch cap or button that was right, so I just bought OEM parts.

Bosch Dist cap ~ $12
Bosch Rotor ~ $4

They've finally got the right part for the KA24 & SR20 - were wrong in the past. I'll get the part numbers soon - catalogue is still wrong. All 4 cly caps are around the $10 - $15 mark

replaced distributor cap  (noticed very slight cracks) and even changed the distributor to try to stop it missing and bogging down, only to find out it was the fuel pressure regulator.  Bloody thing.  (lucky i had a spare)  So if your ka24 is hard to start and has a problem with power loss,  check this damn thing first.
where was i?
oh yeah....................distr ibutor cap      echlin brand  $28   part number ep851
                               rotor button                           $7.50 (didn't buy)
i am happy now apart from the fuel spraying out from a busted injector o-ring

They also said they'd put new leads on for $160.00

Damm 160 is just to much good on ya for telling them. When i got my cap and rotor a asked about top gun leads and was told like 5-8bucks any lenght i want. gona get some lead soon.
*note the lead is actually just the lead without the contact thingy that is hooked up on the sparks and cap* just have to use the old ones if their in good condish.

guys i just go one of these things from Nissan for $14.75, they call it an o ring (I thought they were going to give me the wrong part)
it's part # N2218530R00

Is there any other seals within the distributor besides the O ring around the Base of the distributor that is visible when the distributor is removed and the other that goes directly under the cap?
My old man thinks there should be one somewhere inside the distributor that is allowing the oil to get in.

There is a seal on the shaft that could let oil in.

Also $10-$15 for an O-ring is just a bit much. You could buy a kit to make your own for less than that.

Nope, only that one. Since I replaced mine it has not leaked a smidge of oil.

If you're planning to make one or buy one that was intended for another application, make sure it is oil resistant rubber. If it isn't, the oil will expand and perish the rubber until the seal doesn't work anymore. It can do this over the period of a week in some cases. You've been warned.

hehe, my dizzy, well it's on its 5th one now. original shat itself so got one from wreckers, wrong more, things wear out and it broke, even racq had to tell me that,lol. Got a reconditioned one through repco from some mob down in melbourne for about 275 bucks. they offer a 50 dollar return thingie but then the screw that holds the rotor button on fell off and broke all the hall sensors etc etc so i put one on from old parts but it looked dodgy and was about to break which is why i wanted the newer one, they replaced it easy enough free of charge, i added some loctite to the screw this time and haven't had any problems with it since, it still back fires occassionally but i think thats the oxygen sensor, next on list,
Oh and that was for a 2l 90 model corsair. rotor button from repco. 20 bucks, i thought that was cheap, expecting to get stung like the little things under the coils for 111 bucks each from repco, but definetly needed, they're pocket size, so numerous trips to wreckers will get you these for free. lol. I mean, don't do that.

If it helps at all, I got a new CA20E rotor button from Nissan Bentleigh (Moorabbin) no worries late last year. From memory it wasn't cheap but reasonable enough for me to pay. I remember I inquired about the price for a radio antennae, I can't remember the quoted price but I do remember almost having a heart attack and telling them I wouldn't buy one at that price in a million years. Maybe Nissan dealers price different parts differently from one another.

Sorry about the late reply, but if you see this peeto, hit up anywhere that stocks Aerpro products for an aerial for your car. They will be able to order one in for about $30-40 or so. Nissan charges about $130 I think.

I paid about $35 or so trade price for a CA20E rotor button from Repco a few months ago. Bosch is still making dizzy parts for the U12 CA20.

I know this thread is getting old but:

I bought a dizzy cap for a ka24e last week from an auto pro store ( I won't say which one so as not to insult/offend anyone) and i was charged $50 trade for the cap with no oil seal thing. Is this reasonable.

Also on a side note this store this store tried to tell me that although corsair's and pintara's look exactly the same the are different underneath and that pintara engine bits and pieces don't fit on a corsair even though the engine is same, i tried to tell him that pinny's and corsair's look different but engine parts are mostly the same. He didn't beleive me so i told him I had pinny injectors, distributor and cap,02 sensor, lifter's, water pump, moulded fluid lines, engine mounts and driveshafts in or on my corsair for the last year with no problems.

went to walkers at ippy and got a rotor $15 and cap $30(hall effects) and did my rubber hoses(old age had settled in,loose as,) and fixed em up cause some dik shit had the black and brown solenoids/wiring up the  wrong way ,shit and what a difference it has made.look up the pdf in the wiki articles ES87 to make sure your E.C.C.S. is set properly it makes a big difference .Hail  the the mighty pintara :Dthe seal around my dissy is f#$ked no leaks.

  Just an FYI. I'd advise using genuine Nissan cap and rotor. Replaced mine with aftermarket (Champion) and developed a serious miss. ECU gave an 11 code (Crank position sensor). Put the old cap and rotor on and solved the problem. ( AFTER a week of hair pulling, AAC cleaning, throttle body cleaning and MAF cleaning).

Is there any other seals within the distributor besides the O ring around the Base of the distributor that is visible when the distributor is removed and the other that goes directly under the cap?
My old man thinks there should be one somewhere inside the distributor that is allowing the oil to get in.

Yes he is correct, there is an internal shaft seal. You need to completely strip the distributor to get access to it. Not an easy job unless you have a hydraulic press.
