Re: Switching to Electronic Ignition
If it's a simple and effective solution you're looking to do, go Pertronix. I've done two of them.
The most recent, in our '68 'vert. It sat for 32 years. Pertronix went in it and I've never looked back. As per instructions, to get the hall coil gap right, I did put one little shim in the distributor, but is easy to do.
It uses your original distrib, weights, etc, you simply remove the points, install the pertronix items, wire it (extremely easy and well described in instructions), put your original distributor cap back on, and no one is any to the wiser.
You can get Flamethrower coil(to compliment the pertronix ignition box) that looks like a stock coil also.
