If you decide to go with an electronic ignition get a pertronix unit.  I have used both , the crane set up with its brackets and screws and shutter wheel is difficult to set up correctly and can loosen up and fail.  The benefit of electronic ignition is not having to set up the points at tune up time.  Keep a set of points and condenser in the glove box in the event the electronic system fails

What are the significant pros and cons for doing so, for example power (rather than ease of maintenance)?  I know the H4s, but I am unfamiliar with working with HS4s (same with points vs electronic ignition).
