Pull a bottom sparkplug off first and make sure it is not a motorcycle size plug, if it is you are limited to that size and just put one back in with the same heat range like you pulled out if it has been working fine.
The cap and rotor could be very pricy depending on what cap and rotor were used, make sure you need them before automatically replacing them. Once again you will not know that until you pull yours off and look at it. Hopefully you have paper work that came with the car that said what type of distributor was used, if not with the cap off you can find out what you have.
The wires are not much of an issue, Pelican parts has them.
It is important with a twin plug set up to make sure both plugs are firing, so after you have it together unplug one CDI box and start it then do the other and make sure you do not have a miss.
Timing is also retarded compared to the single plug engine on a twin plug engine. Before you take it apart, run it and find out what the timing was set at.
Do not set to single plug timing! It will be to much advance.
By the way that is a S type or modified air cleaner to factory style S type, cool.
