    I had the same problem initially with the Pertronix. Check the polarity of the wires on the Pertronix and make sure you have them correctly hooked on the coil. I actually had a Pertronix unit that was defective. I had, however, no problem exchanging it for a new one at a local shop. Once the new one was here it hooked right up and runs fine. I hope that this helps.

    Red wire from the pertronix goes to + pos side of the coil, black wire goes to - neg side of the coil, wire with Black/Yellow stripe from the factory loom goes to the + pos side of the coil.:cool:
