Opinions, should I upgrade to electronic ignition or keep my points and do the regular maintenance on them? And what's the pros and cons? Thanks in advance.

Bad points can be limped home! Bad module, you are on the hook. I am used to points since I worked many years on older gas tractors.

I have heard of a few installation problems with Per tronix installs, but for the most part 95% go well.

Another Points fan here. I've been running them for over 50 years now. Never ever converted one over. Just buy a good quality set and check them with a Dwell Meter every once in a while.
