[TR] Name that distributor (TR3)

The backing plate on my TR3's distributor has a lot of play in it so timing is problematic. I ordered a new one from Moss however that part (551-055) doesn't have the same tall
attachment for the low tension lead leading outside the cap (see old unit on the left): https://www.dropbox.com/s/wzxo5gpd3tnuaei/IMG_20181014_103805763.jpg?dl=0

The distributor is stamped 40480D (see below) which doesn't seem to be within the range of their 25D model matching (if I go down the electronic replacement match-up rabbit hole). 

Do I have a non-standard distributor? Any idea the right part # for my backing plate? Or should I just bite the bullet and go electronic?
