This one? http://www.jegs.com/i/Pertronix/751/...iABEgLLJfD_BwE

Replacing it with one of those might be a good idea. I put a couple in from TRW. The one in that last post looks more original. Get rid of the Lucas one.

That looks like the right one.

Not 100% related - but I installed Pertronix Ignitor in the distributor of an old Wagoneer, set the "ballpark" timing by turning distributor counterclockwise, and the engine started on the first try (once there was fuel in the carb) and ran beautifully. I might consider the full Pertronix distributor for one of the Classics.

OK, after a couple dry days the truck started up no problem. I think it might be time to replace the distributor of unknown age with a Pertronix. Any recommendations for a decent vacuum gauge?

Thanks. I took a look in the engine bay today and the distributor that is in there looks like this model with the two prong box on the side (seen on the right in this photo):


(above photo is Pertronix part # 175520)

The part referenced in this thread is for the 175510, which has a pair of wires coming out the side instead:


How do I figure out which part to order? I can call Pertronix on Monday to get their input. I should go take a closer look at what's in there now.

either will work, the d175510 also eliminates the amplifier module .....only 2 wires to be concerned with.....black to the neg side of the coil, and red to the (+) ....time it .....drive away.....
the 175520 uses a side mounted amp module just like the stock one....
the only other thing I would suggest is to use a pertronix coil....just cuz they should know what works with their products......I cant remember which part # coil I bought but I can check in the am..

If plugs are soaked then it's flooded. Hold it WFO and crank it.

What kind of Ohm resistance are we looking for in a Pertronix Coil?

To resolve my question on this thread, I purchased Pertronix distributor #175520 and coil #40011. Had some expert help on installation and setting timing. It has been two weeks and the engine starts immediately every time regardless of ambient conditions and it runs well. So far it appears to be a success.
