Any Australian distributors of Petronix?
CBB VW at Penrith NSW : (02) 4722 9313 or Google CBB VW & search in the electrics/ignition pages of their site.
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!!
so I have a 1800 1975 kombi what would be the best electronic ignition is there any on ebay that would suit fitting them dont look hard but getting the right one does
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, 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
