I don’t know how this post never made it up. I did this work almost a year ago. I uploaded the photos, but for some reason never wrote the post.
Anyways my mechanic at Dave’s recommended that I switch to an electronic ignition and recommended the Pertronix brand. My boyfriend encouraged me to do some research on the different electronic ignitions and once I was clear on what I was doing he pitched in to help me buy it.
The process was super simple, just follow the instructions that come with the electronic ignition. Remove the distributor cap, pull out the distributor, remove the points, and replace it with the new electronic ignition.
Here are some websites I found useful with installation tips –
The only issue we ran into was where the wires connect to the coil. It only had one prong and we needed two. Easy fix, went to Pep Boys and picked up a box for a few dollars.
The whole swap took less than an hour to complete even with our Pep Boys trip.
I apologize for not having a more detailed post for this swap. I honestly do not know how this slipped through the cracks. It was a fun and simple swap and I wish I remembered in more detail the process to share with you. I can guarantee though that anyone can do this simple swap.
