Distributor Question

Go to solution Solved by tech71,

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine is selling this distributor on Ebay.  Not exactly 2002 related, but it is M10 related.  May have come off of a 320i years ago, but uncertain.  By any chance does anyone here know what this distributor fits or have access to reference information?



Bosch Distributor 0237002070 and Spark Plug Wires.  Although I am uncertain, it appears that this distributor fits a BMW 320i and possibly other BMW 4-cylinder models.  The wires, boots, etc appear to be originals and have been checked for continuity.


Thanks in advance for any help!

s-l1600.thumb.jpg.08fde9737197e4017364ca5e8e0d85af.jpgYes, its for a later model 320i maybe early E 30 1.8 liter engine

No points, induction ignition.

Wont work in a 2l 02 engine, unless a 1.8L cam is installed. 

it runs in the opposite direction.

Wonder if you could just change the gear?

No, I suppose not😉

    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
