Hijacking the thread a bit, but...if my ser V is all stock and runs great, should I change to pertronix? I have one in the garage fairly new.
The stock fuel pump is more then adequate for the alpine engine, I would not replace the mechanical pump with an electric unless you also plan to install a fuel pump cut out module to kill power to the pump in case of an accident.
As for the pertronix, better than points but pretty much any other electronic ignition is going to be better and more accurate timing wise.
I dont want to be a broken record so if you want to know the details just search a ways back for topics of pertronix where I commented on "accuracy" relating to the rotor magnet placement.
RooesRacer, I recently read your post on the "accuracy" relating to the rotor magnet placement or Pertronix but after a number of searches on this forum, I haven't been able to call it up. I have used the descriptor "Pertronix" and "RootesRacer" but still fail to get the proper post. I have gotten the above post several time but not the one you refer to. Any suggestions on hot to find it?
