Hey friends,

I’m trying to find a distributor for my 1993 940, but I cannot for the life of me find one that’s not 400 bucks more than I paid for the car (the car was free).

Does anyone know if the distributor from a 740 would fit? I’ve seen lots more for sale and loads cheaper.

TIA, first post so be nice to me.


  • 740 non turbo from 1989 on will fit.

  • Thanks mate! How come a 1989 or earlier won’t fit though?

    All 940 versions use the LH 2.4 injection system, which doesn't need as sophisticated a distributor as the earlier LH 2.2 injection syatem, which have a Hall sensor within them.

    LH 2.2 was used on 740 turbos until 1990, but LH 2.4 was used on NA 740s from year model 1989 on.

    LH 2.4 dizzys are very simple, so they should be a lot cheaper to buy.

  • You’re my distributor Yoda, thankyou ❤️

  • Any lh2.2 or 2.4 distro will work on a lh2.4 car

    The lh2.2 ones just have a plug you don't plug into anything

    You can recycle the alignment thingy bit of plastic from 2.4 to 2.4 distro as well

    I'm pretty sure I have a suitable distributor which had it's shaft seal and O-rings replaced about ten years ago, $30 plus postage.
