What's in the Box

Info

Never change points again with the PerTronix Ignitor points conversion kit. It provides increased voltage for improved performance and fuel efficiency. The system completely eliminates the contact points and fits neatly underneath the distributor cap for a "stock" look. Compatible with all 12 volt negative ground systems.

PerTronix Ignitor Systems can be used with any stock point-type coil, or use the Flame-Thrower 40,000 volt coil for maximum performance. Also compatible with MSD ignition boxes.

  • Delivers 2x the voltage to the plugs for more power and MPG
  • 2:1 improvement over points in current fall time, increasing coil output
  • Hall Effect Trigger with no moving parts
  • Epoxy molding makes module impervious to contamination
  • Fits entirely inside distributor for a clean, stock look
  • Stable timing - no adjustment needed
  • Will trigger most multi-spark CD ignitions
  • Easy installation

Best Bang for the Buck!

September 29, 2011
My homebuilt street rod is a 1935 Plymouth with a 1965 Buick engine that originally used points and coil ignition. I switched to the Pertronix Ignitor and coil and with no other changes, the power and smoothness of the engine was noticably improved. I wish this product had been around back when all we had were points! I am very satisfied with this product!
Pros:
  • Improves Engine Efficiency
  • Easy To Install
  • Increases Power
Yes, I recommend this product.

Why didn't it come with it originally?

April 16, 2010
This product was very easy to install and is reasonably inexpensive to own. The improvement in performance greatly outweighs any cost to purchase. Haven't really encountered any negatives so far. We are leaving soon on a 2500 mile road trip. I expect no problems.
Pros:
  • ERngine idles smoother
  • The car starts quicker
  • Inexpensive to own
  • Seems to have more power
  • Was easy to install
  • Mileage has improved
Yes, I recommend this product.

These kits eliminate the hassle of point replacement and loss of gap and change of dwell as the wear block dimension changes. It updates the distributor to a modern day electronic ignition. For applications other than listed we suggest contacting Pertronix direct for availability. For complete system we suggest using the recommended coil with proper ohm rating.

We apologize but part number 4471181 works in the 57-74 Pontiac V8 and does not include the 55 and 56 years. We are, however, glad to offer 4471183 for the 55 and 56 Pontiac V8's as long as using the original distributor.

If you have a factory Chevy dual point distributor of 55 to 58 then number 4471183 would be the correct part. If you have a Mallory distributor we would need the model number to match up to the correct kit.
