Yes you can more or less use any air cooled distributor on any air cooled engine. But it may not run as smoothly, efficently or cool as it would with the original spec. If you are replacing an SVDA with another SVDA from a carburetor engine and manual car, you should have little issue if any at all.

thanks, it says it belongs to a 1966 1600tl, so it should be close..
