Petronix Ignitor for 404

Post by karoja » Wed Oct 04, 2006 9:05 am

I ordered a Petronix ignitor kit today from Expedition Imports or my Swissmog 404. Any comments, pros or cons as to the installationof this kit?

I've done a couple of these on my Pinzes ( when I had gassers :wink: ) and LR 101 Vampire, and assuming that the condensor is pressed into the distributor case ( as in a Pinz), do not remove it, rather just disconnect the wire from the post. Also keep the points with the truck so if the Pertronix failes, it is easy to re-install the points and get yourself home. Also check that your regulator and ballast resistor are doing their job, over-voltage is the biggest reason for failure.
