Default Looking for 12volt distributor for 230

Just bought 68 m715. Previous owner converted to 12 volt. The backing breaker plate is damaged in the distributor. Iím trying to either find another plate or replace distributor. I thought the points were bad so I purchased a pertronix ignition. But after further inspection, I noticed the backing breaker plate had some damage.

Anyone got any suggestions or info where I can get a new IAT4416 distributor? Thanks all,

Welcome to the Zone and the M715 world. I don't have any of those parts left in my stash though. I am sure someone will be along shortly who knows about some.
Remember if you didn't build it you can't call it yours.

I fixed the backing breaker plate then added a pertronix igniter. It worked! On to rebuild carb now.
