1981 635csi coil to distributor lead

Post by smeats » Wed Nov 11, 2020 2:39 pm

Hi everyone,
I am having great difficulty getting a replacement ignition lead from the coil to distributor for my 1981 635csi! (the one I have is not OME and keeps popping off) I tried my local BMW dealer first but they told me all they could supply was the cable plugs and I'd have to assemble myself! I looked at the HT harness sets online and bought one but it didn't fit as it had male plugs and mine needs female connections. I then bought another set from ebay Germany and although I checked fitment it was another wrong plug type plus the coil to distributor lead was far too short! (mine is about 40 to 50 cm) W&N have harnesses at over £200 but they don't include the lead I want! Can someone here please point me in the right direction? [-o<
Thanks in advance
1981 635CSI series 1
