Distributor - Prestolite Marine SAE J1171, 14095800, IBM 7021 8Y

I have a 1959 Willy's retrofitted with a GM V-6 engine. I am trying to identify exact engine type and year. One of the traceable engine components is a Prestolite Marine Distributor - stamped with the following numbers SAE J1171, 14095800, IBM 7021 8Y. Is it possible to determine what engines this distributor was made for?

I have an 1980 Envinrude pontoon boat and the Electrical Power tilt went out. It is a Prestolite SAEJ1171. Can this part be ordered? If so, how much?
