Proper name of the product does help


I had two modules in a conversion of a GM chevy dizzy go bad. Never used the brand since.

One quit and I was dead on the side of the road... the second one would mis-fire , popping out the tail pipe.

Several club members have had Pertronix distributors that have gone bad and they replaced modules and they went bad after a time also. They have all sworn off Pertronix and have gone to MSD.
