WTB Distributor

Recommended Posts

hello all,

the distributor is next on the list for my little rolling restoration, and i'm debating buying the ie mech advance unit, v.s. sending the one i've got off to advance distributors for a rebuild. only thing is, i can't take the car out of commission for the three week turnaround advance currently advertises on the site (street sweeping tickets in oakland).

so before i pull the $180 trigger with ireland, i thought i'd see if any of you fine folks have either a spare i.e. mech advance distributor you'd like to part with, or a used but functional distributor i could use while waiting on the rebuild.

the car is a carbureted 1973.

2 X 0231151008 -- both have issues -- broken springs, so good for cores

1 X 0231168021

1 X 0231170164

1 X 0231180003

4 X 0231180008

I can take detailed photos as necessary.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
