Distributor Cap and Rotor question


Recommended Posts

I was able to get the E10 running with the old cap and rotor.  I just changed my cap/rotor to a new "performance" set.  The old cap/rotor caused the E10 to run surprisingly smooth after 10+ years dormant.  The new cap/rotor appears to have a miss now.  I am going to return the new unit and use the old pair until I find a better option.  Can anyone on line help me find a rotor like pictured below or help me convert the one I have to female studs.  I will just convert my spark plug and coil wire over to the male stud style.  This will be a much more positive connection because the wires I bought won't allow me to make a 90 degree turn in the boot.  It looks and functions poorly.

OEM and OEM-style distributor caps, rotors, and primary wiring have never been a problem area for ‘02’s. Why not simply go to Blunttech, Maximillian, Roger’s tii, or Walloth & Nesch and buy an OEM or OEM-style cap, rotor, and wiring in the correct style for your model and year?


How many horsepower are you really getting out of that high-performance system?

    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
