|| I put a Pertronix kit in my 66 318, and it works
great. Six years later, and the car still fires up fine, even after
sitting for a few weeks. I highly recommend them, and I believe you can
get right to Pertronix own website and get it cheaper. Don't go through
third parties if you don't have to.
||Pertronix sells a system that will go in your stock
that "stock" look. When you add electronic ignition you no longer
need the resistor on the firewall, cause you need the full batt
voltage to make it run as good as it can.
||I have used the Mallory dual point, the mopar
electronic, and the MSD digital 6+. I would just go with the mopar
electronic, it’s reliable, proven and designed for street use. The MSD
unit is nice, but I’m not so sure of it’s longevity in street use. I
race the MSD Digital 6+ and love it in that application. I trigger the
MSD with a stock distributor with the electronic module (hall effect
||The main thing I like about the mopar setup is if you
are on the
road and have a problem you can go to any mom & pops auto parts
store and get every part you need off the shelf to get you back on
the road again. For street driving it is very reliable and don't
have to worry about your exotic aftermarket breaking and not being
able to find the part without a speciality store.
||I've used the Pertronix and they work great. Completely
under the distributor cap (replacing points) and you just need to run
the extra wire to 12v (usually on the coil). Only the most anal of us
would find it to be non-stock.
||Ditto on the Pertronix. Had it in my 383 ever since I
the car in May 2001. Went for a 420 mile constant road trip in 97
degree weather with no electrical breakdown or even a miss. I do
recommend it. Really easy to install, and after reading here I'm
going to have to look at how I have her hooked in. Still got my
ballast resistor and don't know If I'm using that, or just 'showing'
it. I might be doin' it wrong.
| Toyota, then
Pertronix, then MSD
||I actually had an igniter box from a Toyota when I
first got Charlene on the road.
When we put in the new engine we installed a Pertronix (I). It caught
fire when I left the key on one day. I replaced the entire system
with the MSD setup.
