62BillT 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.

1970cs 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.

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.
