PerTronix 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. These 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. Ignitor® is an ideal choice for collector car restoration because they fit entirely under the distributor cap.

Does this come with a new ignition coil?

Asked by DANIEL on December 10, 2016

A:

No it doesn't. The change out from the points and condenser to this ignitor was fairly simple. I also changed my coil with a PNX-40011.

do yourself a favor

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

PNX-1281
its great. I put it and the ignition module in every old car I have. I found that it helps with the ease dependability of starting. Plus, I stink at replacing points so PerTronix has eliminated that forever. Oh, it really helps with the snap in the accelerator. Meaning, no stumble when I wanna "get on it". Buy it, you'll be glad you did. Only thing is...its addictive...you will like the response so well you will want to buy one to put on all the carb cars... ...read more

Simple is better

I put one of these in my 70 Torino Cobra a few years ago and loved it. So when I started to have problems with the points in my wifes 69 lincoln it was a no brainer. Super simple to install my wife had it installed in less than a half hour.
