Precision Distributor Rotor for Reliable Mazda Ride

By: Anthony Fontanelle

The high-voltage current transmitter called power distributor installed on Mazda's engine bay is the ignition system part that ensures the safety and precision of the high-wire combustion process. Because the combustion chambers of an internal combustion engine typically have to be ignited individually and at different intervals, spark delivery has to be done in a correct firing order. The Mazda distributor is the ignition system part that is tasked to route the high-voltage current according to the firing order, making it possible for the Mazda engine to have an up-to-standards fuel efficiency.

The rotor plays as Mazda distributor's Central part. It is insulated from the body of the Mazda, and is chiefly in charge of parceling out the current throughout the combustion process. As the Mazda distributor rotor's metal part makes contact with the ignition coils, the rotor arm's metal part passes close to the spark plug of each cylinder. As the rotor spins within the distributor, electrical current is able to pass through the small gaps created between the rotor arm and the contacts due to the high voltage produced by the ignition coil.

Mazda distributor rotors are fitted on the upper part of the shaft through a set of snug-fitting installation screws. It is kept firm and secured to efficiently regulate the current flow. Some varieties of the Mazda distributor rotor have built-in locators on the rotating mechanism and holes in the plate to ensure correct reassembly in instances when an adjustment is necessitated to get the most appropriate timing of spark firing. The distributes current from the ignition coils every time it is driven by the camshaft and the ignition system's centrifugal advance mechanism. Tweaking the spark timing, commonly in the form of a vacuum advance, allows the engine to run efficiently.
