Where can I find someone that ship internationally and sells
distributor bushings to an Hitachi ea81 distributor?

Napaonline and Partsamerica both has them in stock, but they
do not ship outside US. I live in Norway and they are not possible to get here, Subaru is the only part source.

Any tips would be appreciated.

Do you mean the copper bushing in the bottom of the dist. housing? I went to a auto electricity shop, they are specialised in repairs of starters, alternators etc. They have many different bushings and if necessary they can putt it in a lathe and make it fit.
If you can't find a solusion i could order some and ship them to you in a post packet. (From Flanders-Belgium) Can't be very expencive i guess.

Yeah - find a good auto machine shop - they can rebuild your disty for you. You probably (unless you are a machinist) won't be able to install the bushings even if you had them, so this is your best plan. There has to be someone local to you - ask some auto parts stores where to go - sometimes those people will know.

The NAPA bushings do fit right without being machined, the problem is you have to take your distributor apart first to mic the bushings that are in it in order to get the right size. They have a choice of 2 diameters and shouldered or non-shouldered. I rebuilt my distributor last winter. I suppose you could just order them all, then you can't go wrong. I can tell you that the bottom bushing (by the gear) has the shouldered bushing and the top one doesn't. At least that's the way mine was. Tolerance has probably got the best idea for you. Plus in Norway the bushings should already be metric, easier than converting from American inches.
