Pertronix Electronic Ignition Kit

Pertronix Electronic Ignition Kit

The Ignitor by Pertronix replaces your points and condenser with a solid-state electronic ignition system. The unit fits entirely under your stock distributor cap.  What style points and what type of distributor do you have? Not sure? Check out our distributor decipher page found on the “Information and Downloads” link above.

The Ignitor will give your engine better fuel economy, more horsepower, longer plug life and all the advantages of an electronic ignition system. The Ignitor installs in less than 30 minutes in most cases. Maintain the stock look and never change your points again! What Pertronix has to say about their Ignitor kits: "Engineering: A precisely engineered solid-state breakerless ignition system. Rotating cobalt magnets, mounted on the distributor shaft trigger an electronic switching module (Hall Cell) for higher voltages up to 35,000... and with 1/4 degree timing accuracy from zero to 15,000 RPM. The module is epoxy encapsulated for protection against moisture, dirt, dust, oil, etc. Economy: Engines enjoy improved fuel economy, maintaining an efficient state-of-tune with no points to ever get out of adjustment. Users also report two to three times the spark plug life after installation. The Ignitor eliminates minor tune-ups and quickly pays for itself."
