Distributor rebuild kit—Bosch part #1 237 011 108. Has hall effect sensor, but not internal oil seal.

Distributor internal oil seal—If there is oil in your distributor cap you need to replace this part. The distributor will need to be disassembled to do it. NAPA part number 4912 is a substitute for the no-longer-available original seal. Also: SKF #4702 and Honda #91206-KV3-003. A basic guide (newer model 900 distributor used in this how-to, but the technique presented is the same. ).

Distributor Hall Effect Sensor—The Bosch part number for the distributor rtebuild kit with hall sensor is 1237011109, but appears to be hard to find and very expensive if you can. SAABits in the UK sells just the hall sensor as a "distributor pulse sensor" to fit part number Saab: 8857617, Hundai:27180-22000. VEMO sells the whole distributor rebuild kit as part number V10-72-1150.
