Here is another good one for the gurus on this forum, I am thinking about replacing the points in my 211B with the Pertronix system. This tractor is my lawn mower with a 7 ft finish mower and I was thinking about making this addition to help that 6V system start a little bit easier. Has anybody here tried the Pertronix?

What all is required to install the Pertronix? about how long will it take?

Takes about 30 mins. Following is for VAC & 300 12 volt neg gnd. 200 probably has the same distributor.

Basically all you have to do is take the cap & rotor off, remove the points, condenser, breaker plate, and the old wiring to the coil.

Mount the new ignition plate with the old screws and run the new wires to the coil, you now have two wires instead of one.

Slid the magnetic sleeve down on the distributor shaft and mount the old rotor on top, same as it came off.

Put the old cap on and check the engine timing.

Save the old parts for prosperity, dust cover makes a decent paper weight.

I will e:mail the complete instruction page if you want it.

I have several of them in small tractors, and truck engines. It does not make a hotter spark unless you install a hotter coil, but it does make a spark that lasts longer simular to a magneto. On the small tractors there is a noticeable difference in the low RPM torque. Less work to put in than a set of points that are hard to get at. Good Luck DK

I've had a Pertronix ignition in my VAC for several years. You couldn't pay me enough to go back to breaker points.

I think I paid $60 or so for the pickup and another $40 for the coil. Bought mine at one of the local auto parts stores.
