Default 19 something (est 59) White Mobilift ET-72 - PICS... HELP?

OK, so I've had this beast for >10yrs now. It runs (bear to start), and has a beloved 6v positive ground system (complete with short somewhere)... However, she does have a bit of a sweetspot in my heart. I used to use her once a month (at best), but now I use her 2-3 times a week. Finally pulled the plugs (was H10C - odd) and now am on a wild goose chase to find wires, dist cap, rotor, and wire from coil to dist cap...

I do NOT know which engine it has (reading here lead me to believe a Vaughn, but the dates don't match). Hence, finding parts has been a shot in the dark. She needs some work - but works well. Any suggestions and information would be terribly needed and greatly appreciated...

Hi I believe you have a Continental engine. I worked on one years ago and never did find enough parts to rebuild it. The ignition parts should be fairly easy to find. You can make the wires and probably get ignition parts by using the distributor number and manufacture name.
