Pretty annoying because once electrical things pop up my knowledge goes to zero. I ordered a new one this morning. Now I have to find someone to help me install it and get the timing right.
You may consider an electronic ignition / distributor. I am not certain how a distributor comes for your application but a conversion kit is what I have always used. Worth the money indeed...

Since the budget is pretty tight I wound up buying a Mallory points distributor. I will upgrade the distributor to one of their e spark systems in the future.

Question though, while trying to find TDC I cranked the boat before I started to see which way the motor cranked. (It cranked counter clockwise) When I was hand cranking the motor to find TDC it would only crank clockwise. Is this normal?

You should be able to hand crank it counter clockwise. It might take a little more effort.

Pull the plugs and it will be easier.
