Reply to "Pertronix Ignitor III"

It is all working now and can be seen at http://www.panteraplace.com/page223.htm The first unit I received had a temperature related problem that caused a miss after the engine heated up to full operating temperature and driven awhile. It was either the Ignitor III or some problem it was causing with my original Mallory coil. The tach would also intermittently jump around at idle like it was missing pulses. I replaced the first Ignitor III with a new unit and installed the matching Pertronix low resistance Blaster III coil that is made for the application and it works great. Pertronix tells me that their units seldom if ever have heat problems so I’m a bit lost on what was going on.

I have decades of experience using points so I know how to get the best from them and I was somewhat surprised with how much better the engine runs. It even sounds different!! Sounds like a Slick50 ad but it was very surprising!!
