MG TD TF 1500 - Distributor died: now what?
The part that holds one of the springs below the plate is broken. That part of the body of the distributor that holds one of the clips that holds the distributor cap has broken off. What a mess.
Anglo parts sells a reconditioned distributor assembly for 294 euros.
Moss sells a Mallory distributor but it entails drilling the shaft. Can that be done without removing the engine?
Which do you suggest I do?

|Abindon spares lists them at $242. Likely rebuilt? They are frequently on Ebay as well. George|
|I'm going to send it to Advanced Distributors. Thanks for the referral.|
The Mallory distributor doesn't come with a gear on the bottom of the shaft. You have to remove the gear from your distributor to use on the Mallory and you'll have to drill a hole through the shaft on the Mallory to pin the gear on it. And yes, it is all done with the distributor out of the car.
|Ed - Jeff did the distributor for our TD about 6 months ago, it feels like I have a brand new car now. Cheers - Dave|
