Fiat 242 (or Citroen C35) camshaft and distributor dirve gear
« on: November 27, 2010, 05:33:53 PM »
Hello, I need a camshaft and distributor drive gear from a Fiat 242 or 242E.  This needs to be for the 1585cc OHV gasoline (benzina) version, not the diesel one.  The 242 was a van built in the 70s and 80s.  In the latter part of production, there was a joint venture with Citroen and it was sold as a Citroen C35.  It may thus be possible to source these under "Citroen."  The 242/242E and C35 were never sold in North America so there is no parts source here.  The Fiat 131 with an OHV engine was never sold here either.

The camshaft part no. is 4328070 and the drive gear is no. 9927336.  The 242 and 242E are the same as the Fiat 131 1585cc OHV engines, but run in reverse rotation.  I'd prefer new, but will settle for decent used parts.

I might even consider working with someone in Europe to buy a complete parts van in order to get the parts I need.  I have absolutely NO clue as to availability of the parts or vehicles.  When I do a Google search, I have found lots of running vans for sale.  I'd consider getting a complete or stripped engine sent here but the cost would be prohibitive.  If someone found an engine or van, I'd need someone to pull the parts.
