Where to buy...

I am having a hard time finding a distributor that will fit in my '86. Problem is that the two I've bought are slightly larger than the original one. Where is a goop reputable place to get one? I have tried O'Rileys and Auto Zone.

The part that is to big is the part in the circle, more specifically the part with the arrow.


If you have a used one that works and want to sell it to me, let me know.

It may have been Advanced I went to, I always get the two mixed up. It's slim pickins on parts stores here. I live in a really small town. I'll have to give it a try. Thanks for the suggestion.

Don't really wanna rebuild it. I just wanna drop a new one in.

I really would like to get it running before then and I don't want to tow it up there, thanks for the offer though.

I called two JY's and one parts store with no luck so I tried a store in the next state and they will have it for me in the morning, hopefully this one will fit.
