New Member 1970 280S

New to the forum, just picked up a '70 280S, had one growing up. I am in the process of tuning it up. Only problem this car has is surging on acceleration. I am starting with the ignition and fuel delivery and am hoping i'm not going to have to do much with the carbs (too many pieces). One question I have is which distributor cap and points do I need. I'm not sure if its the light metal or cast iron housing. The distributor # is 0231142005, the last 6 digits of the VIN is 052420. Right now there is a BERU VK155 on there with a crack.
