Looks like the Mallory Unilite for Land Rovers does have a vacuum advance and is optically trigger versus hall effect on the Lucas.

http://www.mr-gasket.com/pdf/Distributors.pdf

Mallory lists two separate curvatures available for Land Rover (24 degrees at 3200 rpm and 18 degrees at 3400 rpm). I see it online for as little as $289 so not a bad deal for a new distributor.

However, it appears to need a resistor to work properly and doesn't come with gear drive.

As Dan says you just won't be able to switch borrow caps, rotors etc. with other Rovers on the trail.
