I believe you can modify early ww2 Jeep distributor caps to fit and work.

Here’s a pic of the Jeep cap, or you can expand your search for a 1920s era delco, used on 4 cylinder Nash etc.that may be a direct replacement.

As a last resort, you can have some made through a place like this.

Daniel,
Was this just purchased on ebay? If so it has 5202 stamped on the side. This is the part number of Pierce-Arrow for 1919-1920 and started life as a 6 cylinder unit. Have you checked the point cam for 4 lobes or is it 6? The gear ratio from the input shaft to the vertical shafts should be 2 to 1 for a 4 cylinder unit or 3 to 1 for a 6 cylinder. It could be that 4 cylinder parts were put in a reused 6 cylinder case but more likely a 4 cylinder distributor cap set on a 6 cylinder distributor unit. 4,6 and 8 cylinder distributor caps all had the same mounting dimensions so will set right on.
Not an answer to your question,but hope this helps.

Layden, pierce Arrow also made the same unit in 4 cylinders for their trucks.

Delco made these units and sold them to Pierce and Stutz along with other electrical equipment. The 4 cylinder one for a Pierce truck is marked 5225.

Ed may be correct about the jeep distributor cap & rotor I have made the mid 60s cap & rotor fit thomas distributors with a little machine work.
