The PerTronix igniter replaces the points and the igniter module in the semi-electronic ignition version of the 40 ignition system. I can't throw parts at the ignition system until I know it's working. An unidentified fault, like the persistent ground I apparently have, won't be solved by installing the PerTronix "igniter".I thought the whole purpose of Pertronix was to replace the igniter , so why use it.
