That's a pity Lee ..... but if you fancied the correct timing plate, it might be worth emailing Simon Auto with my pic, it is not listed but it is possible he has them. I have had occasion, in the past, of wanting a non listed part .... sent him a pic, and he had them in stock.
As a matter of interest .... how are you going to find engine TDC in order to line up your timing plate ? ..... even the OE one is adjustable. The screwdriver through the plug hole is not going to be accurate enough for this purpose.

Good question John,
I was going with the screwdriver approach and rocking until I got both sides and then halving it.
There are also marks on the back of flywheel visible with some squinting, but not with a timing lamp.
I'm sure it will get closer than we are today.
Good idea on simon auto though.
