Which should I get?

The engine is an 'A' series 998 cc circa 1973

Am considering replacing the distributor in my MiniMoke.

Found
45D4 LUCAS type distributor is fitted with the original points ignition system and comes with a vacuum advance unit.

The Lucas 45D4 distributor was fitted to these Mini models from 1974 to 1981:

Mini 850cc, Mini Van and Mini Pick up - Lucas number 41410, 41411, 41417, 41418

Alternatively I may buy a cap and a rotor and new leads.

Suggestion as to which distributor, I don't see much (which could be a VERY important detail) difference.
Having a moking good time!
