[200q20v] Distributor gear crunched...

Had the interesting and unpleasant experience of the '91 stopping suddenly
after about 15 seconds of running after a normal cold start. No noise,
nothing. After plodding around, I figured it was the hall sensor. Mechanic
discovers it was a shattered distributor gear. Have to buy a whole new
distributor. Best price I've found is $366.00. Any BTDTs?? Have to
remove a lot of stuff to get at the dizzy but will give me a chance to
check out the injector spray patterns. Starting had been a little more
difficult recently but no other warnings. Glad it did it in the yard
(where it was 2 degrees F at the time...).
Any advice, experience, or parts info most appreciated!
