Default Ignition / Cam question

I have a rebuilt 1.6 16v engine without a distributor cam gear. it has a 2 tooth reluctor? where the cam gear would go. It also has a crank position star wheel under the crankshaft cam belt pulley. I assume this is a waste spark system but I need the rest of the ignition parts.
Please help me identify the type of ignition system I need for this engine and the model it came from. I'm told this is a 1995 engine. Can I change the cam and use a distributor or what.

there's a converter for the distributor that is sold on the european market, seems like it was a couple hundred dollars. If you go that route, the distributor will sit up too high and you'll have to cut a hole in the firewall to make space for it. Using a distributor you won't be able to take advantage of the 16 vlave system though. You'd be better off with an 8 valve with a distributor.

OK so what ignition system is this??? All the cam angle sensors I've seen listed have a tang drive thet fits "into" the end of the camshaft.
This looks like the sensor should fit "over" the end of the camshaft and have a fixed sensor pick up.

It could be an Esteem engine.

yes it is esteem he left that minor tid bit out. LOL


welcome and no , id never delete any non spammer.
i enjoyed your post , sorry if odd sounds bad its not at all, in fact odd is intriguing.
spice of life is odd.

there is a serial number.
the left lower side of motor , is the bell hosing
mount and there is stamping
G16Lnnnnn
L=year

the KICK /VIT 16v head is SOHC with a gear on the end of the cam.

the esteem FWD motor is SY416 car, kick is SE or SQ416 RWD motor.

the esteem has a rear facing dizzy and special cam!
an no gear, just a slot,
the cam is unique an esteem
the head is the same starting 92 on some kick factories and on 94 others. (minor changes. same pn. on casting.

even if you had the correct vit.kick head the cam has diff gear pitch and diff mount than a sammi.
i can see you have not told us yet what your are doing.
cheers.

i dont have fsm for esteems but the sn is on the block.

the base head is near same
cam totally diff, with no gear
the blocks on FWD car an be very different mountwise,
esteem block is 58B00
kick 92-59 is 62g00 (big diff in prefix is warning)

the head , and block and tranny all have sn.
all.
im told there are exception is vits made in Spain, but you never mentioned country.

i now have links to the Sammi forum showing how to mix up 1.3 sammi stuff on to 95 blocks, etc.
some even weld up custom disty mounts.
to get CARB , standalone distrubutor to run on new kick motors

so what are you putting this motor in.

that would be question1.
cheers. and welcome.
