distributor number

My 73 Auto had a very similar within 25 VIN. It also had a "JFUD4" 0 231 168 023. All of this information can be found on the outside of the distributor housing.

But that is not your real question, since there are any number of distributors that will fit and work with any M10 engine, including yours. The real question is the orientation of your points. There are only two different styles regardless of distributor number. It all depends on the orientation of your points. IF your distributor is a JFUD 4 then you want the 1847 Petronix.

Good luck with that car. I miss mine very much.

Well, I tried to check the dizzy. Can't see the number very well. Looks like 0231215071. It looks like it's marked JFUR4. They're both pretty worn. It's with the black coil. Does that make sense? The points are forward. I'm thinking I need the Petronix 1847 but just want to make sure. According to Haynes, JFUR4 is what it should be if it's stock. Any more thoughts before I do it?

I am assuming when you say "worn" you are describing the imprinted numbers and not the distributor. The Pat Allen provided a reference chart for distributors. http://www.bmw2002faq.com/component/option,com_forum/Itemid,57/page,viewtopic/t,286931/ I am not sure this is all that helpful regarding points placement and cannot tell if we are referring to the same concept when describing "forward" points since later distributors even rotated in a different direction AND different points plates/platforms can be swapped into different distributor bodies. Bottom line: you have a 50% chance of getting the right part. The difference will be obvious when you look at the parts. Ask the vendor about the off chance you order or receive the wrong part.

Good luck

    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
