Hi there. Welcome to our site!

If the original distributor is still able to turn the rotor and hold the cap, you could install an aftermarket crank trigger and ignition module to replace the original components (click here to see examples from MSD). I could certainly guide you through the installation of one of these systems if you needed me to, the main concern here would be your budget for this project.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Best Regards.
