The PerTronix Ignitor is a precisely engineered solid state breakerless ignition system. Consisting of permanently mounted magnets for each cylinder. Rotating with the rotor these magnets trigger an electronic chip (Hall Cell) which is embedded int eh switching module. The entire Ignitor system is immune to dirt, oil, heat and moisture. Firing down to zero RPMs it switches twice the energy of conventional systems. Installation is fast and simple. The Ignitor requires no "black boxes" or complicated wiring and can be installed int he time required to change a set of points.
For cars with Lucas Distributors:
PerTronix Ignitors cause a good strong spark. Old rotors may burn out from this. We strongly recommend carrying a spare ignition rotor in your glove box to save a towing fee in the event of this occurance. Contact us for very reasonably priced rotors for most Lucas applications.
