Default Crab type cap on 59-A distributor

Can you put a crab type cap on a 59-A distributor. It is the 2bolt type with the 2 piece cap, it is very hard to feed the wires through this cap and get it back together. Do you change the rotor, and what about the spring wire that swings over to hold the cap in place. Do you keep this wire, or is there something else that holds the crab cap on? Thanks, Jack
