Never change points again! This electronic (breakerless) distributor is designed for use in Formula Ford 1600 ("Kent/Cortina") engines. It is legal for SCCA Formula Ford 1600 per FCS 9.1.1.B.12.r.

All electronics are contained in the distributor housing (no black box required). The low-profile aluminum housing gives more clearance under the intake manifold than some other brands, so it can be used on Kent-based Lotus and Cosworth twincam engines or crossflow engines with DCOE carburetors. The internals use the proven Pertronix Ignitor II breakerless ignition system for excellent reliability. Includes a side-entry distributor cap for even more room under the manifold. Mechanical advance only; no vacuum advance provision. Includes distributor drive gear.

The Pertronix Flame-Thrower II Ignition Coil (Part No. 1315-201, sold separately) is highly recommended with this distributor. The Ignitor II produces so much energy, it will shorten the life of a standard coil.

Also having issues with the quality

4 hours on the unit and a failure at Road Atlanta. Purchased a used one from from a competitor that went back to points. This doesn't seem to be as reliable as the original Petronix ignitor which was bullet proof.

So it's great when it works, but unfortunately our vintage race team has experienced poor reliability with these distributors this season. We bought three new ones for three cars and all have failed in some form or another. With mind, the distributor cap coil electrode contact inside snapped off and the igniter failed after three race weekends (maybe 5 hours of running time). My teammates have also had igniter failures over the 4 race weekend season. This is an unacceptable quality issue that must be remedied. Points/condensers can be a hassle but at least they work consistently. The reliability problems we've experienced has us seriously reconsidering our decision to run Pertronix parts. Your milege may vary, but currently I would not recommend these distributors until there is some indication that the reliability issues have been addressed.

I purchased this (along with the Pertronix Flame-Thrower II Epoxy-Filled Ignition Coil) for my '77 Lola T-440 Formula Ford and couldn't be happier. Straight-forward installation and It performed perfectly in it's first race weekend. No more points to worry about ever again! :)
