Make sure to feed the Pertronix unit with a full 12 volts. If you feed it with the original coil wire that runs through the resistance section, it will die a certain death due to only 8 – 9 volts. I don’t have the wiring diagram in front of me, but I assume you could feed it with a jumper wire off the switched fuse circuit or off an alternator wire that becomes live with the ignition switch.

My question is what wires should I have attached to >my coil? Currently I have a white/yellow and Brown on the negative side and the Pertronix on the positive side.??


  Robert – 

    I’m glad you’re enjoying your miss 😉 (I presume spellcheck changed it from annoying).  Have you recently or ever had your distributor rebuilt/recurved?  I chased a miss for years and having the dizzy rebuilt/recurved by Advanced Distributors in MN fixed it.  Just a thought.
