Thank you all for your help. I've not tried Jim Stokes yet but will, bought a gearbox off this firm and its proven to perform very well. I tried Italparts also, helpful chap but no luck yet, same for Prewarcar. The rotor arm was found to be eroded on the contact, it's a substantial part so cleaned and reset back to vertical and miss-fire is now missing so to speak. Having said that, a spare would be useful and below is a link to someone offering to make them, they came by recommendation so are capable. As a one off its too expensive but I'd be ok if a number of you need one made and we can use mine as the pattern. Please let me know.
Looks like the cap has been painted with a sealant in an attempt to stop the
arcing. Without more detailed photos, I'm guessing you're looking somewhere
around $600 per cap, for a run of five caps. Can give you a better idea
once we've seen it up close and personal. It would probably be a good idea
to do the rotor at the same time.
We would require an original part to use as a pattern, which would be
returned. The better the condition of the original pattern part, the less
time and cost. From receipt of order to shipment is approximately 4-6
