    Be careful about leaving the key in the "on" position for too long when testing. From what I've read, it's possible to burn the Pertronix module out.

    Had to vote for the 70's Camaro. My 2nd car was a 72, loved it.

    Zedyone, coincidentally was just reading your old rebuild thread. Not the first time you had issues with that dizzy.
    Why not just try going back to your original Pertronix for now?
