[omc-boats] Looking for OMC Distributor Cap/Wires

I'm slowly working away at my Sweet 16 project boat, but haven't got past
mechanical yet. Would anyone know where I could get a distributor cap for a
1967 Starflite 100 S outboard (at a reasonable price...)? The centre pin is
broken off in the current cap I have, and I just can't justify the price
they quoted me from the Envinrude book at my local marina.
I have a similar vintage (65/66?) 100hp Johnson that I bought solely for the
cap, but now I think that this engine should be usable, so would like to see
if I could get both running :) Also, can anyone tell me what I need to know
about buying ignition wires? Is there a difference between marine and
automotive, or are there specifications I need on the wire to get an
appropriate substitute?
Any advice appreciated,

I have a new ball gear for your engine. It had a suggested list price of
$198.25 in 1997 and I will sell it for $98, including postage. We closed our
dealership and still have many parts in stock for these older engines.

My ball gear on the outdrive it pretty worn, but still works pretty well. I
would like to replace it however. Anyone have a good used gear, as I'm
amazed that mine still works? It's a 1970 high profile OMC outdrive on a V6
Buick. Thanks!
