This is a list of salvage yards showing to have a distributor. You may call to make sure they have the cable drive.

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
The information you gave is the same as the ones I have at my disposal and they have informed me previously and again to-day that they do not have the proper distributor required. They do have after market distributors but none have the necessary cable drive for the tachometer which would then require the purchase of an electronic tachometer , making the whole idea of keeping the car original fly out the window. I guess I will have to continue my search . Perhaps coming across one before the snow flies is in the cards; there-by making it possible to put the little spit on the road before it has to be garaged for the winter. I will inform anyone needing mechanical assistance of your earnest attempt to assist me with my distributor need and I do appreciate your efforts in this regard. But my problem remains unsolved . Thank you . Regards XXXXX From Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
