PerTronix 45001 Flame-Thrower II Chrome Coil
(Part #44745002)

Flame-Thrower II coils feature a super low 0.6 Ohm primary resistance which make them the ideal coil for Ignitor II ignition systems, Flame-Thrower billet distributors, as well as many other high energy ignitions. Low resistance and improved turns ratio help to produce up to 45,000 volts. This higher voltage enables you to run larger spark plug gaps for added power and better fuel economy.

These coils are also compatible with most capacitive discharge boxes.

  • 1937-1959 Chevy 235-261 6 cyl
  • Dual point

Chevy 235-261 Six Cylinder Electronic Distributor
(Part #91045181)
  •  Billet 6061-T6 aluminum housing
  •  Hardened steel shaft
  •  Sealed ball bearing & sintered busing
  •  Extremely accurate magnetic pickup
  •  Mechanical advance only (no vacuum advance)
  •  Comes with drive gear installed

This is a "ready to run" distributor. It does not require a multi spark box.

Use coil number 447-45001 (1.5 OHM). If using with a lower resistance coil than 1.5 OHM, you must use a ballast resistor to achieve the 1.5 OHM rating.

PerTronix 40011 Flame-Thrower Coil, Black
(Part #44745011)

The hotter the spark, the easier your engine will start, and this 40,000 volt coil is just the ticket to a quick start! Its higher voltage allows larger spark plug gaps for added power, smoother response and better fuel economy. These coils are internally resisted so they are compatible with many inductive ignition systems.

  • 40,000 volts
  • Black finish for that "stock look"
  • For use with 12 volt inductive ignition systems
  • 1.5 Ohm primary resistance.
  • Legal in all 50 states and Canada
