Default A distributor, or Electronic Ingnition Upgrade

I am not familiar with the model you have, but if it's drivetrain is either a small block or big block Chrysler product, it is a simple matter to use your same distributor and install a Pertronix ingnition. This small device fits inside your stock distributor and converts it to Electronic. It will also use a coil (they have an excellent one) or your stock one. Their coil will handle a full 12 volt charge, giving much hotter spark, whereas your stock coil must run at a lower voltage to prevent it from overheating, but you can use the stock coil on this system, and keep your voltage dropping resistor in line.
