Wow, when looking for parts, don't forget the 323GT. That's an ambitious project. Love someone is taking an interest in these cars.

Just a heads up guys, I've started the tear-down on the distributor. It's tricky to get the time to do it at work, and even when I do find the time, making space is another issue. I dumped some customer's transfer case guts onto the floor today so I could have space on my work bench to play with it. The screws holding all the little bits of the thing together, they sure don't like coming apart after 31 years. They prefer to strip out and then be extremely stuck. if anyone has plans to rebuild theirs, I strongly suggest a good set of left handed drill bits and screw extractors. I've had to extract 3 of the screws so far, and I only have it half way apart.

It's slow going, but once I'm done it will hopefully have been worthwhile. There are definitely parts in there that I should replace, that I don't have. I bought all the distributor parts listed for our cars on Rock Auto, so I'll be hunting down all the other stuff once its all torn down. All of the screws, for starters....  ::)

This is the correct pulley, but it isn't showing on Amazon right now.
Thanks Jim Pierce.

Thanks -- I ordered a similar one on eBay -- but they were out of stock.

Just found your same one listed at!  Will check and order!

Hi all,

I'm looking to buy one of Rocketman's RocketChipped ECUs for my XR2, which is the last part I need for my hybrid turbo build.
Unfortunately I had no luck over the past months to contact him, so maybe someone still has one of his chipped ECUs lying around and is willing to sell it to me?

Many thanks in advance!  :D

The non-ac belt runs to just the power steering pump. That's it. Still need the Vee belt to run the alternator & water pump.

I connect it in November and leave it on til May. I plan to find a waterproof one that I can permanently mount in the engine bay and then run a plug behind the fog light so I can plug it in without even opening the hood.

Just go to the auto parts store and ask them for a non-ac belt :) no idler needed

Well that definitely sounds ideal. Does it get rid of the two-belt setup, and just runs everything together on a single drive belt?
