1982 911 SC Distributor making noise on start up.


Vehicle Information: Model: 911 SC ; Year: 1982; Body Type: Targa; Total Mileage: approx. 240,000;

After about a 4 hour outing of regular to a little harder than regular driving through the local country side, I came home put the car away and waited for the morning for another "romp."When I backed out of the garage I noticed a noisecomming from the engine. I traced it to the distributor and it sounds like a bearing may be dry. After the temp came up, I checked oil level and that was fine. After it ran a little longer the noise went away. I haven't heard it untill today after another drive in the country of about 4 hours when I went to put it away later. Is this an oiling problem or do I need to start saving for a new distributor?
