With a solid-state electronic system... you will never change points again! Test results show the Ignitor delivers twice the voltage to spark plugs, increasing horsepower, fuel economy and plug life. It offers a 2:1 improvement over point type systems in current fall time for increased coil output. The system is designed for use with point-type coils, optimal performance achieved when used with Flame-Thrower 40,000 volt coil. Rotating cobalt magnets are mounted on the distributor shaft, they trigger an electronic switching module (Hall effect integrated circuit)
