Ignition Points and Condensers

If your older car is running rough your points or condensers might be going bad. Older style ignition systems use points and condensers to act as a switch to prevent arcing within the distributor.

Pertronix Electronic Ignition
For over thirty years, the Ignitor has proven itself in applications ranging from race cars to tractors. The Ignitor replaces breaker point and troublesome factory electronic ignitions with a dependable, self contained and maintenance free electronic ignition system. The Ignitor II has many of the same great feature that the Ignitor has, but its smarter. Ignitor II units sense the coil current level and use a powerful micro controller to adjust the dwell. Variable dwell helps to maintain peak energy throughout the entire RPM range.
The Ignitor has been called the "stealth" ignition because of its quick installation and nearly undetectable presence under your distributor cap.

Distributor Caps

Distributor caps are usually at the top of the distributor and are where the spark plug wires attach. The caps can become worn out and crack over time. It is a good idea to check your distributor cap when you change your spark plugs. Cap off your ignition solutions with a new distributor cap!
