Thumbs up Pertronix Ignitor I II or III?

Confused about all the different Pertronix Ignitor systems. I have a 1973 Scout II 304, which is the best system to use? Same with the Flame Thrower they also have a I II and III.

Default Re: Pertronix Ignitor I II or III?

The Pertonix 1 will die if the ignition is left on without the engine running. You don't have to do it, a guy at America's Tires killed mine. Same guy who said my truck was stupid because he couldn't figure out how to release the emergency brake. He didn't work there for long. There are Pertonix 2s and 3s for a reason - much needed improvements. I went with the DUI, and have never regretted it.
1975 Scout II healthy 258, Wide T19 , 4:1 D300 3:54s,
1972 Real clean stock Scout II P/S, P/B, 345, T18, 3:73s
1969 Mach I. Balanced ported 351W, 650 double pumper, Super T10, Detroit locker with 4.11s. Lowered with racing springs, bars, Konis etc.
(Don't worry about getting arrested when I drive the Scouts).
