Need some pointers in swapping out an old school 3 way switch

Old garage, old switch; updating it to a quiet rocker style so itís easier to clean. But I canít find a wiring diagram online For these older style pole mounts. To sweeten the deal all my wires are black (Although the white continues down toward a 2x receptacle). What should* be a 5 minute project looks a little tricky now after seeing where these mounting poles are located on the old switch. Any ideas? I think I need a 3 way style replacement, thereís an 2x outlet below this switch and the switch pictured feeds out to the garage ceiling light.

Thanks

Install wire that was under black screw on black screw of new switch. (Looks likt that is the side with single screw on your picture)
Other wires can be under any remaining screws.
