Q & A

What's in the Box

PerTronix Plug-n-Play Ignitor III Flame-Thrower billet distributors give you CD ignition box performance without the box! Ignitor III systems produce multiple sparks through the entire RPM range, but DO NOT require an external ignition "box." Plus, the Ignitor III module has an adaptive dwell feature which maintains peak energy throughout the entire RPM range.

  1. Does NOT have provisions for a vacuum advance. 
  2. Can be used with most ignition coils 0.6 Ohms or greater.
  3. For 12 volt negative ground systems. Requires 12-14 Volts.
  4. Must use suppression spiral core ignition wires (not solid core wires).
  5. NOT for use with CD or multiple spark systems.
  6. Lobe sensor design triggers off the point cam or reluctor and does not require a magnet sleeve.
  7. Not intended for marine use.

Does NOT have a vacuum advance and comes with an iron distributor gear. Red, points-style socket cap. For S/B and B/B Chevy.
