Have Just Bought a 1985 Ferrari GTS Quatro. Found running a little ruff due to only running on 4 cylinders.

Dismantled and found a crack and a large hole in a Distributor also 3 leads burnt out and the rotor shorted. Have temporarily fixed the Dizzy and leads (Glue, part of a coke bottle also leads from a Audi). But I do need a rotor and don't want to wait a month for shipment from overseas.

As a new owner of these fantastic machines would actual like to drive it soon. If anyone has a Distributor rotor or knows of an aftermarket version available in Australia drop me an email. Also if a dizzy is available in Australia would love that two.

Appreciate any help from other owners as there are allot of age problems that need addressing. Electric Widows CV boots all the usual.

Still am Very Happy!

Did you read a few lines above what you posted. This very nice man has dizzy's in his store room that will never be installed on a car again, maybe one could be. He may still want them for the legs of a Ferrari styled coffee table or he may not. Maybe you could ask him if he would be willing to part with one for a reasonable price.


I now have 4 genuine Ferrari 308 distributors sitting in my store room. I reckon they'll never be installed on a car again!

Every dealer and specialist in the country would likely have a rotor on the shelf.

They last so long with regards to wear, that they usually end up going brittle with heat and aging!

Where are you? Can point you to your nearest outlet.

I have them on the shelf, but I don't sell low cost parts in the mail.

Am In Sydney Australia. Ferrari Mazarati Sydney said no they didn't stock old gear and would have to order. Maybe will have to wait. Will epoxy the old one Thursday see If i can get a couple of weeks out of it.

Also have to rebuild the leads gather you can dismantle them and install new cables much cheaper than $700 for a set. Am just using standard NGK Silicon leads think it should work....

Contact cavallino motorsport, Russell or Miles.

You can buy 7mm lead, and just change what you need.

There's something wrong with you. Even YOU sell upgraded ignition systems to get away from the standard setup.

Original always worked....but modern works better.

*shakes head*

It's like you'll just type any sort of crap to try and discredit anything I say, even at the expense of making you sound ridiculous.
