Pertronix Ignitor Ignition

I fitzed with the worn points ignition for a few hours before I'd had enough of the foul-smelling unburned fuel, frequent misfires under load, and overall poor performance. I upgraded to a Pertronix Ignitor electronic ignition (PN 2541), along with a Flame-Thrower coil (PN 40501) and haven't looked back since. The Pertronix ignition is by far one of the best mods I've made to this early Jeep. There are a couple of different early Jeep distributors, so make sure you get the correct Ignitor.
