      The distributor Should directly on from a saab 900 non turbo engine that what i was getting to when i had the same idea with a carb build maybeed you can rebuilde one fra a 1,3 engine with hall sender or elsre soy can still use your stock ignition ecu from the 16v engine

      i got one from a bmw e30 they are vacuum advance and bolt right up... search local junk yards make sure the vacuum is good by sucking on it and seeing if it holds vacuum.
