PerTronix's Ignitor® solid-state ignition systems deliver more energy with greater timing accuracy. The secret lies in the trigger magnets, which spin with the rotor and operate a switching module that requires no external control box. The systems are immune to heat, oil, and debris and install in about 15 minutes with only two wires to connect. They come with a switching module, hardware, and instructions. They're an ideal choice for collector car restoration because they fit entirely under the distributor cap.

Huge improvement over points! Easy installation.

Don't forget to mark which way the rotor is pointed in the distributor before you remove it. Use supplied washers to set the minimum gap and you're good to go. I had to use a ballast resistor on my '73 El Camino (350 ci, MSD Blaster 2 coil). Took about half an hour, plus retiming. Starts and runs great! Thank you!

Pertonix ignitor ignition

Only issue was washers for setting air gap were not large enough for screws to hold trigger in place, I just drilled them out to fit but otherwise easy swap & fired right 1st turn of key!
