Buying things in the states rather than here seems to be quite economical and you guys have been doing specialised marine stuff better and longer than us.

Any help is appreciated
Personally I would swap out the petronix for a Mallory E-Spark Kit. I have read numerous times that petronix has failures. This is the kit I used, amazon slightly cheaper I also use the MSD blaster Coil 2, the Mallory requires the ballast resistor so that would to need to be reinstalled. Or just replace the entire distributor out for a new unit Which I did when I modded my engine, but I used this dizzy for the optical eye which is the same that is used in the espark kit
