My son passed and left me a 1974 2002. I found that the vacuum advance diaphragm is broken. The distributor is a 0 231 180 008. I am need of the vacuum diaphragm, cap, and points. Where can I find the diaphragm? Is this the correct distributor for this year? If I have to buy a used distributor which ones will work?

I'm fairly positive I have one laying around with a good diaphram. I will post pictures tomorrow. if interested I will post my e-mail address. you will not need the same dizzy, but if replacing the diaphram only, IIRC (if I remember correctly) the diaphram mounts on the high side of the dizzy and you will need the same vac advance unit.

Thx Daron

@SA -- Sorry about your son.

I thought you had to replace the entire vac advance unit as the diaphragm inside the advance unit are not replaceable.

plates move freely and easily with some suction. gear looks very good. There are two types of points and condensors for 02 distributors. standard and reverse points, based on the mount orientation to the base plate, and condesors with square or rounded mount tabs. rounded tabbed condensors will fit into the square cut dizzies but not the other way around.
