    I literally just opened my box from amazon of pertronix goodies.
    Got a coil, the electronic ignition and new leads delivered for $170.
    Took about 2 weeks to arrive.
    Very happy. Can't wait to install them!!

    Yes, I've had a bad run with the last few. First one lasted years, next one only lasted a few weeks, never worked after washing the engine. Bought another and it didn't work at all and too hard to send back overseas, now running points.

    Buy from Aussie distributor/supplier in case a warranty claim has to be made.

    Ask your mechanic he recommends

    I am still all for the Petronix Upgrade
    My issue turned out was a user related fault:oops:, I had nicked the positive lead as I installed it showing bare wire and it would occasionally arc on the dizzy, causing the fault, After that same Valla Trip I also realised I had more problems when it turned out I did the whole trip on 3 cylinders and faulty carbs. A top engine end rebuild was done not long after and a new petronix was fitted then, 4yrs later still going strong
