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

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

PNX-1281
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.

I have installed several of these conversion kits with excellent results. Petronix gives easier starting, smoother running, and better gas mileage.

No More Points!

PNX-1281
This product took me 20 minutes to install and worked great. It fits in your existing distributor. The engine started right up and ran fine. Pay attention to the instructions and you'll be fine.

Installed this and it had no spark right out of the box. I have heard great things about Pertronix ignitors but this one was not the case.

No problems, pretty simple on a 69 390. Didn't have to run a separate wire for power, works great.
