There is a rotor from a VW that works. I can dig up the part tonight if you have
no luck finding it here.
I heard there was also a cap from some 4-cyl car - but have never seen it for
All the real V8 parts are available, but the OEM spec rotor is nutty expensive,
only because it has a set screw - which I think makes no sense. I prefer the
standard push on type without glue. Cheap and easy.

And - you are right - the dealer wants to sell you a whole new distributor if
you ever need a cap or rotor.
Rick at www.importpartsspec.com can help you out if you get stuck finding
aftermarket parts, and can ship to AU but you likely have a more local supplier.
