Want to make it clear that I’m not complaining and in the end the Pertronix Ignitor III and the Blaster III Coil will be a much better ignition than the points.
Sorry Mike. But I can not agree with you here.
How is a system that is already proven to be faulty better than points ? Can you give one example where points failure has stranded you?
Maybe when the Pertronix works it gives a modest improvement in performance. But peace of mind is worth a lot more than a few extra HP.
I do not think there is any Pantera owner who wants to be switching out their distributor’s guts on the side of the road.
I love those old points and I have them sealed away in a ziplock bag. I get them out from time to time to clean them and look them over for old times!! Still have one brand new set in a sealed box too.
As part of the Pertronix trouble shooting process I actually got to re-install one set of points and my old coil to verify that the problem was really caused by the Pertronix.
