Electronic ignition

This unit is simple to install, uses the original points, and if it ever fails it is only a two minute job to revert to the original system.  Involves disconnecting the condenser, wiring the coil to the new unit, and the new unit to the distributor and ground.  I have one on my '28 Essex.  Gives hotter spark, and point last forever.

    Huh. That's really interesting. It's basically just using the points as a signal circuit. I bet it's more reliable than the Pertronix Hall sensor. Cheaper too. Thanks for sharing!

    Geoff, did you install a higher voltage coil or keep the stock coil?
