OLD FRPP Crate Engine Distributor MFG?

Hey guys-

I'm working on swapping my old Ford Racing crate engine into one of my Galaxies and in the process of re-stabbing the distributor I noticed that the locating tang that indexes the rotor to the top of the dizzy shaft is gone- the rotor just spins around...

I can't locate any markings on the distributor. Does anybody know the manufacturer so that I can track down another rotor?

It is a billet looking piece with the brown cap/ retainer/ spacer like the one in the below picture. I was going to take some pics of mine on my way out the door this morning but forgot...

Thanks!

According to this old brochure, the F460 crate engine used a Mallory Billet distributor.
