I havent ran them in any of my tractors. I still use Blue Streak points in them,but I did have a Ford F-100 with a Pertronix in it and it was a little over a year it went out and left me sitting in the middle of town. When they go they don't give any warning signs. I put points back in the truck and later sold it but its still running that way. Am I against Pertronix? No, I was just saying when they go they don't give any warning signs like when a lot of other modules start to go bad. That's my experience with them anyway. If I just used my TO20 for grade the driveway or bush hog then I probably would convert it, but I use my Ferguson for all my raking hay, plowing, discing, cultivating, planting corn,etc... If points should go bad while I'm raking 15 acres of hay I can swap them out in 5 mins and be going again. If the Pertronix should go out I would be in trouble because I would have to order another and wait and by then the hay may get rained on. That's why I haven't ever considered switching mine.

I agree if the unit goes bad it will leave you stranded. What I like about the Pertronix is all I have to do is pull it out and put the point plate and assembly back in. It's already set and adjusted so it'd probably take ten to fifteen minutes tops to change back.
