    The 2E runs a 4 window dizzy and acts as a crank trigger.

    ADY and AGG engines, run a crank trigger like an ABF engine, and the dizzy carries 1 window for cylinder recognition only.

    The "non 2e" engines have a different diameter dizzy to the 2e, larger than Digi for example, but you can fit a 4 window Digi style one with an easily machined adapter. And use the matching intermediate shaft.
