1983 400i Distributor

Hello everyone

I recently purchased a 1983 400i. The distributor is missing, and I am looking for a replacement. I have found 1 on ebay, but it is far too expensive. I am looking for any 400i that is being broken for parts. If anybody knows of one, or possibly has one, please let me know.

Many thanks

Clynton- Those distributors are pretty rare. Think about making an offer on the one you found. I usually get 30-50% off when I do that. Especially for parts with a very limited market.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.

Thanks Taz. I tried, but with no luck. I managed to locate the part from Ital-Spares.com. Fantastic service, and at a very good price.

I am sure that in Rand terms, I paid more for the distributor, than the entire car cost when it was new. Just shows how most South Africans are a prisoner to their currency....
