Pertronix Ignitor Electronic
Ignition Conversion
     When we tell our customers how easy it is to install a Pertronix Ignitor on their Mustang, they usually get a blank stare on their face as if to say "It can't be that easy!"   Well, it is and we're going to prove it to you!

     Follow along as we install a Petronix Ignitor on Mustangs Plus' Dan Jenkins' newly acquired project car, a 64½ coupe. Built at San Jose on July 20th, it's equipped with a "D" code 289 engine.

     Dan wanted to get it running its best before deciding which restoration job to tackle first. So installing a Petronix Ignitor was a natural!

     Dan's new pony is a great daily driver, but it has a lot of little problems that need to be corrected. We know we'll be seeing a lot of it on Tech Night! Dan's already talking about door hinges.............

Included in the kit is the Petronix module, the magnet sleeve, 2 nuts, a wire end, and an air gap gauge. Everything you'll need to do the job except for a flat blade screw driver, a 3\8" open end wrench, and a pair of wire cutters.
