Get yourself an electronic Distributor, any old mopar one to fit the slant. Make sure it is complete.
I reckon your "Mechanic" friend is like the typical mechanic and hasnt got a clue about Mopars especially the Electronic ignition.
I reckon he saw the electronic stuff and just binned your electronic dissy, and located a cheap points one (took him a week or so)
Just to get you back on the road and out of his hair.
Get the electronic slant 6 dissy, check the wiring, there are diagrams on the net, make sure that rusty old orange box is earthed proberly to the body. ie clean off the rust where it mounts and it should be fine. Set the air gap on the dissy, and if it doesnt run it is the orange box. get a black one from the junkers.
Or Get back to the mechanic and ask for your old distributor back. Which I suspect, was an electronic one anyway.

This is getting desperate, might have to break the rules....OK.

Check out===

http://www.wildcatmopars.com/

They collect and wreck heaps of old Mopars, surely they got what ya want.

http://www.texasacres.com/

Texas acres were a huge old Mopar wreckers, but now retired...but may still have some scraps left, doesnt hurt to ask, just dont be a dick....these guys have been doing this stuff for 50 years or more.

http://www.bradsnosparts.com/

Brads nos have heaps of old stock parts, may have a s/h piece your after.

There are dozens more, usually advertised in the 2 main Mopar Magazines, buy them and have a look.

I could probably get one for you, But Im in Australia, and the cost to post etc etc.

You are in the land of Mopar....most old dudes should have them just sitting around in their backyards.

I watch those "Pickers" shows...you yanks are Crazy, with what you keep...millions of $$ just left in barns or outside to rust away.

Learn this young fella....When you mess with old cars YOU GOT TO NETWORK AND GET IN THE LOOP or you never get anywhere!!!!!
Most youngins are into it thru their dads, and all their knowledge.

You need to network MOPAR dudes...keep away from Chevy or Ford generic mechanics etc...FIND MOPAR GUYS AND ASK Qs THEN LISTEN!!!
Go to a local cruise or hangout, and look for the guys with Mopars, restos or modified, it dont matter, then be honest with them and blend......thats how we all learn.

Nowdays is VERY hard to start out an old Mopar car fan from nothing, you must network. (real people too not only net)

And Dont be a **** [edited] about it, be the student and let them teach you....most Mopar guys are good like that.

Go forth young man!>>>>>>>>>>
