Hello, I've got Pertronix electronic ignition, not fitted yet, coil and leads on the way from Carshopinc.com (£54 all in!). When I get them, I'm planning on fitting them myself. Is there any special procedures I should adopt or is it a simple case of taking the old bits out and replacing with new?

I want to be sure so I don't melt the engine in the process! (it's a 1500)

Thanks :hangloose

Just done it myself, peice of cake.

The plastic collar for the dizzy shaft is a snug fit and needs a firm push.

Your leads may not have the plug ends made off, if so, get hold of a proper set of lead crimps, don't try and make do with small electrical ones.

Another thing, don't try & force the leads into the old holders, you'll damage the insulation.

PM me if you need any more info, but you should have it all there in the instructions
