I have a 1982 Powerslot with a Pleasurecraft Fores 351, Need tune up kit with points, cap and rotor cap. Have ordered 2 from 2 different sources, however never seem to be correct. Talked with some from Sierra (aftermarket company) they do not seem to make what I need. Or I need to go with a Electronic Conversion, however with the trouble I have had in finding just cap and rotor do not want to order the wrong thing. I have had the boat sense new, however it has not been in the water in a couple of years.

ditch the points and get a petronix ignitor II plus the coil that matches it.

Stay away from thermostats for automobiles. You can cross over a lot of parts but sometimes the results aren't good. Some parts are marine for a reason.
