I have no experience with it in a G, but if it has a Delco or other name brand distributor, the odds are that there is an electronic ignition kit available for your tractor. My experience with using electronic ignition is that the ignition system stays in tune much longer. Essentially, all you need to change are the spark plugs and rotor from time to time. There are no points or condensor to wear down or burn out. Is it worth the $75 to $90 to convert to electronic ignition? That is the question you need to ask yourself.

If your tractor is 6 volt, positive ground, it is easier if you convert it to 12 volt, negative ground. I think Pertronix does have 6 volt positive ground systems available, though.
