Wanted, 429/460 distributor

I am looking for a 429/460 distributor that has a cable tach drive. I would prefer an electronic MSD type but open to old points type housing to convert.

Is the gear drive in it? I can't see the other side.

Can you do one more pick from other side with cap and rotor removed?

The plug in the pic is where the tach drive goes, it dosnt have the unit that the cable connects to.

Wonder if parts are still available or who rebuilds this type of thing. Part number of unit might help in research.

BLOWNMACH,

Thanks for the effort of pic's and part number on distributor. I have located and bought a N.O.S. Accel with the cable drive attached.
I will continue to watch for a FORD OEM cable drive unit, I'm sure there out there sitting in a box of old parts. $$$
