308gtb Part Needed

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL
Does anyone know where i may be able to get part No 111838 from, its the cover/shield which fixes to the bodywork to protect over the distributor area, I have tried Ferrari U.K. and Eurospares but this part is no longer available. I would also be interested in a second-hand one if one is available.
Thanks

Phil

Hi Al
Many thanks for the offer, the only problem is getting one to copy/template/measure, the part i need is shown on the attached picture (with the "high voltage" sticker on it), so if anyone out there can help in any way that would be great.
Regards

Phil

wrong side of the pond I know, but try T Rutlands. http://www.trutlands.com/
Ask for John. Any part i am told by Ferrari that is not available they either have or get it.
Tell them Damian @ Fusion sent you, just trying to help a fellow Brit.
Cheers

Where'd that part come from?? My '79 GTS has two distributors with rubber boots on them. Why does your GTB only have one distributor? Actually, I assume that car is not yours since you are looking for the part.

The shield looks like it is there just to protect against rainwater (instead of the rubber boot). As long as the cap and wires are in good shape you won't have any problems leaving this cover off (even in the rain). I've never seen a 308 with that shield on it before. If it was stock on the '79 308, they all were probably removed by the first mechanic that worked on the car and never re-installed.

Hi Capt Pete
The car is mine, but i noticed that there were 3 studs coming out of the bodywork with nothing fixed onto them, so i delved a little further ,the parts list and one or two pictures gave me the answer.

Hmm...Odd. I just went out and looked at my car and it doesn't have the studs.
