I have been using high quality copper spark plug wires with my pertronix and the pertronix died -2 tractors-8n and a 640-.both dead- I see where pertronix requires resistance automotive type wire. I saw a comment that a a resistance type high tension wire from coil to distributor would be sufficient. Ready to convert back to points. But maybe I would replace the pertronix if a coil wire change would be enough. 8N and a 640, heck of a time getting spark plug wires into the original 8N loom..!

I've always liked points. Carry a spare set, and anywhere, any time it quits you can just throw them in with a screwdriver, and eye ball the gap, your going again. I had pertronix ignition in my VW, I was stuck on the road somewhere. If I had points, which I have not had problems with, I'd be going again instead you sit till you get replaced. It happen to me twice, went back to points, now I'm always going.
pertronix is like R/C airplanes, it's not "IF" you'll crash, it is "when". Pat
