This was just mentioned in another post about someone having issues with electronic ignition and not wanting to go backwards. Had a buddy this week end ask why I was doing a tune up And points on my 64 merc and why not “upgrade” to electronic ignition? I told him have you seen a ford electronic distributor? They look like shit! ( to me anyways) and I like my wee little points cap !! When I bought my 53 Chrysler I wanted to “ upgrade” to 12v and electronic ignition , alternator etc. My boss asks my Why? I says “ to make it more reliable” He looks at me straight face and goes “ so this thing has lived for 50 years just like this...... and your going to make it MORE RELIABLE?!? yeah, so it stayed stock and I drove that car all over hells half acre with 0 issues in the 3 years I owned it! Anyways rant over.
