I'm 3rd owner of an 87 PS 190 w/Indmar 351W.

Boat currently has a clip-down Prestolite distributor which means one of two things:

1. Mastercraft installed an 86 engine in this 87 PS, or

2. Previous owner switched from a screw down Prestolite distributor to a clip-down distributor at some point. I have paperwork documenting that the previous owner installed a "rebuilt" distributor and that he converted to electronic ignition, I just don't know if the original distributor was the screw down type.

I've replaced the electronic module twice now and I just ordered a new Mallory breakerless distributor from Discount Inboard Marine. I'm going to give the Mallory a shot, but I want to secure a distributor w/points, or just the plate for points/condenser that will work with my Prestolite clip-down distributor.

Thanks,

Shane
