Default Thoughts on Bosch Breakerless Ignition

I have a chance to purchase a complete Bosch Breakerless ignition from a 240 with a B20b for my 1969, B20B engine. Right now it has the wrong distributor on it but it does run. Would this work? Is it better than the 086 distributor I have on it? Right now the 086 does not have vacuum advance. Since it runs is there any need to replace it?

This distributor does apparently work well. I think that only the USA got the B20 in the 240 so not much experience of it here. I think it has been documented now and again on Brickboard so I would suggest an inquiry there would get replies. You could do a search there.
