Jeeze Jerry........the original poster asked a question about whether it was financial worth it. So I quoted a few $$$ off'n the top of my head and yer reaming me fer it. The point I was trying to make $20 points will last at least 5-yrs. And while 12V conversions really help start semi-wornout low compression engines, so will 6-volts start low compression engines. And comparing yer OHV 851 to flathead 4-nipple dizzy ain't even in the same ballpark. ........respectfully, Dell who is NOT anti-electronic ignition

I didn't pick this fight Dell. You did by naysaying my recommendation that he convert.
The truth of it is that every time the topics of points vs EI or 6V vs 12V come up you weigh in with your "EZ starting 6V 8N" and your knowing "8 different ways to convert to 12V and every one of them work right the first time" and your tried and true method of taking a clean, crisp dollar and "wipe off the invisible corrosion between the points" and your "retired Boeing electronics engineer" stuff.
This time you just added the hyperinflated prices.
All of it is said to keep the newbie's tractor original and get him on your learning curve.
Now I will give you credit for being a good teacher and for your altruism in helping the folks who just want their tractors to run.
But I happen to think there is a better way for the electrically challenged and have been around here long enough to not care for some of the "prevailing wisdom".
I happen to think that more people would be better served by converting.
And I realize that $400 is a small sum for a spanking, modern electrical system - especially when we daily see how much dough some guys spend on their restovations.
So I voice my opinion - and invariably catch some flak for it.
Perhaps you aren't anti EI.
But you do your best to muffle anyone who advocates anything other than original.
And round and round it goes...
