Well I finally got around to upgrading the ignition, somewhat by neccesity as the MSD distributor module took a dump.
I changed to a Pertronix system and couldn't be happier. Easy to install and fired up right away. It seems that they must buy plug wire by the mile though as most of the pre made wire set I bought are way too long. Need to change the plug ends to a straight boot and will shorten them up in the process.

I've toyed with the idea of their stock look distributors. How does it run when you lay into it?

Haven't had it out yet, only running in the garage but it fired up instantly, which tells me that the MSD system was on it's way out for a bit as it was a struggle to start for a while.
Once I have cleaned up the plug wires and some other wiring it will be out for a test run.
Pleased with the system so far though.
