Gettin' Dizzy
Adding to their already extensive line, PerTronix announces their new plug-and-play billet distributors for GMC and Chevrolet L6 (straight six) applications that are designed to provide maximum ignition performance and easy installation, all at a price you can afford. Available for vacuum advance and non-vacuum applications for the '62-88 194ci, 230ci, and 3.8L engine families in either a male or female cap configuration. These 100% new distributors come with the Ignitor II electronics, compatible with any inductive ignition system coil, but high-rpm performance can be improved when used with their low resistant (0.6 ohm) Flame-Thrower II coil. If you're using a multi-spark CD ignition box, no problem, the PerTronix distributor is compatible. This distributor allows you to upgrade your outdated points or stock electronic distributor with a performance proven distributor that features the patented Ignitor II electronic ignition module and a CNC machined 6061 T-6 polished billet housing and deck.
