Re: PerTronix Flame-Thrower ignition system?
First thing I did in the '53 Crestline (running 5 years now) and our '68 'vert(running two years).
Mind you I put these kits in the stock distributors. I also did as SoCal805 did above; taped the white wire back and ran a single power wire, and also shimmed the distributor in the Camaro. I probably didn't have to, but I liked the clearance better after I did.
Zero visual cues to their existence under the hood. Look totally stock. They perform as well anything.
Bolts in to everything stock that you already have.
One piece of advice is the get the step-up version of the magneto. Otherwise if you get the low-end one, it'll burn out if you leave the key on. If you get the next step up, like an extra $30 or something, then it has a little micro-dealio in it that will switch it off if you're messing with something and need the key on.
Do it with confidence.
