Does anyone know if you can get a Pertronix point eliminator kit for the Stude 170 (1964)? I see them listed for the Chevy 6's and Stude 8's only.

Bill Cathcart has them for the flathead six. I don't know if he has them for the OHV six. His phone number is 860-564-5852.:)

Todd,

I got mine from Ted Harbit, just before he sold the parts business to Phil Harris. Check with Phil at Fairborn Studebaker, he has the best prices of any vendor IMHO.

I get the impression that the same electronic distributor can be used on the OHV six as was used on the flatheads. Ask Bill Cathcart, he will know: http://www.cathcartsstudebaker.com

Here is a recent topic from the Stude Truck Talk forum where we discussed options for an electronic distributor.

I just got a petronix electronic ignition converter for Christmas. Our car is the 63 Lark OHV 6 cylinder. The petronix number you want to order is Part# 2561 fopr prestolite 1at-4403 distributers. I hope this helps out there. Waydon.

Thanks Waydon. I picked one up and it went with the 64. Kent, let us know how it works when you install it.
