Help : Need vacuum advance for a Ford 3.0 Taurus engine.

I want to put a ford 3.0 taurus engine in an old forklift but Haven't
found a distributor with a vacuum advance.
All help will be appreciated.

I'd like to marinize one, too, and am having the same issue... to a point.

I'd like to have it be a carb'd 3.0, w/ centrifugal advance only. Looks
like I'd have to do a side-draft carb, & cobble together a distributor
from the parts bin, with a Pertronix module and conventional battery
ignition... then the copper gaskets & water-cooled exhaust manifolds...
so I just canned the whole idea.

How are you going to get it to mate up into a lift truck(PTO, carb,
engine control, etc.)? The chevy 4.3 V-6 is widely used in that
application(marine too...), and they are plentiful & cheap. That's the
route that makes the most sense.
