I'm pretty frustrated and wondered if any of you have had a Pertronix failure. About 3 years ago I converted my stock 1954 Ford 239 OHV 6v positive ground to Pertronix electronic ignition. I did so based upon the idea that I wanted to have maximum ideal ignition along with eliminating everything I could do to make my car reliable, easy to start, etc. The compression on my car was low and this weekend I decided to do a compression test - dry and wet. I hooked up a remote starter button and checked it out. Afterwards, I put everything back in place and tried to start it, only to realize that I had flooded it. After on and off cranking, it no longer coughed and I checked the spark - of which there was none. The cranking apparently fried the Pertronix! I called Pertronix and their answer was that I have a 30 month warranty - of which I may or may not be in that timetable. Plus, I need to find the receipt, where I purchased it (there are 200 resellers) to get a replacement. The entire purpose of electronic ignition is dependability. There goes that theory. Any of you had this problem? Does Acell make a 6v system that any of your are aware of? I'm thinking of just going back to old school points and condensor.
