  • Need to put in Pointless points on my distributor

    I have a 1964 V8 259 motor. I need to find how to contact vendor on Pentronix, I believe this is what you call it. Anyway, need vendor and phone number. I am located near Sacramento,Ca. Want to eliminate points

            Check ACCEL P/N 2030. That's a kit to install photo optical triggering mechanism in the Chrysler Autolite distributor(same as Stude ). If you have the single point Autolite in your Stude the pertronix kit cannot be made to work. It fits only the dual point Avanti type distributor or the Delco distributor. It will not work in the IBP-4108 Autolite.

              I think Bill Cathcart sells a rebuilt distributor converted to Pertronix. I bought one for my Champion Six, and he may sell them for V8s too. Check his ad in Turning Wheels to see.

                      It would be better...if you put the module "inside" the distrubutor rather than "on" the distributor..!

                      Sorry...just following Anne's lead...

                        Believe it or not~ ([:0])
                        other vendors stock these parts as well~ And they are way closer to you!!! Cheaper shipping I'd bet. You'll just have to hope they aren't still snowed in when you order what it is you need!!!

                          Thanks Mike, so the Chrysler HEI conversion should be a pretty easy replacement correct?
                          last HEI unit I did was on a Ford 351W[xx(] but it was a simple procedure

                            Jason, I and some Studebaker vendors stock these Pertronix conversion kits, they are easier than installing new points to install.

                            I just happen to have the early Delco '56-'59 V-8 and '60 Hawk kits for that distributor you have, in stock! Also the Pertronix 40,000 volt coil that works good with it.

                            I also stock the Pertronix kit for the single point '62-'64 V-8 Prestolite Dist. that Kenmike2 says is not available. [:0]
