Welcome.

I bought a set from Advance Auto Parts. IIRC, there were two sets - one included the resistors ends & the others did not. If your current ends are in good shape (you can test that the resistors are OK with a simple ohm meter) then the cheaper set is all you need.

Of course there are the usual Alfa parts suppliers. There is a list of new & used parts sources here: Suppliers List.

IAP sells a good set which fit without any problems. Since it is a new to you 1984, you might want to replace the distributor cap and rotor while you are at it. The spring loaded carbon button in the center of the cap may be worn if the cap has never been replaced. More than one Alfa owner has had problems with a highly worn carbon button making poor contact with the top of the rotor due to excessive wear. IAP is havng a little sale right now and you can get 10% off on orders of $150 or more. They are International Auto Parts in Charlottesville VA. Another inexpensive source is Rock Auto Parts (just google them on the net).
