pertronix electronic ignition?

Post by fireguyfire » Thu May 11, 2017 10:55 pm

Has anyone added the in distributor pertronix electronic ignition kit?
If so, what is your opinion of it? I have used them on Mopar muscle cars I have restored and have really liked them, and I am considering put one in my 70 D100.

Previous owner had installed one on my '68 slant6. I've owned it less than a year but no issues.

The first thing I replaced was the points with a Pertronix! That was 13 years ago and 40000 miles!
