Q & A

What's in the Box

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

Pertronix now lists this Ignitor kit for applications as early as 1933. It should work fine for your 38 Chevy master deluxe.

Mallory Ignition 700 Ballast Resistor, .75-1.50 Ohm
(Part #500700)
                        

Stabilize coil current and prolong point life with Mallory ballast resistors. Computer-wound to ensure resistance value. Premium ceramic bodies provide maximum durability and superior heat transfer. Recommended when a new coil is installed.

Mallory Unilite distributors include self-contained modules that require a ballast resistor, loom resistance wire, or internally resisted coil (ex. when using HyFire CD Ignitions). Using a heavy duty porcelain resistor and threaded terminal connectors, this resistor is rated at 200 watts and 0.75 (cold) – 1.5 (hot) ohms.

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
