Re: need help getting rid of points
I have replaced the points in my '68 Camaro with the Pertronix kit and am very happy. My engine redlines at about 7000 RPM and once you hit 6500 the old points liked to float a lot. The Pertronix kit solved that problem and I get faster starting and a better idle. Well at least better for the size of cam that thing has in it. It still isn't what I want from the ignition so I am changing out the distributor for an MSD unit and a 6AL CDI box. An option that you have is to change your entire ignition for the Duraspark electronic ignition from a '78 and up 304. Add the TeamRush upgraded cap, rotor, and coil and you have a system which is better than the Pertronix kit. If this is of interest to you I can post the wiring diagram which was provided by TR.
