so is it really worth it to have electronic ignition versus conventional points system ? I have a '72 Ply vintage ignition system with ECU box and pointless dist. Only three months old and already quit on me. It's very hard to find the problem, I think it's the dist, which is garranteed for life, but still takes 3 days to get a new one ! So I have to wait till Fri to get the dist, if that's the problem , need to be on the road tommorrow morning........ so why shouldn't I just go to junk yard and get regular old fashioned dist, clean up the points, and go ???????????
