10-4 that, I stick with the simple engines i can work on . It's so important to be able to diagnose and fix a problem at sea.Scrapper said:I've used pertronix on Ford engines with no problems. But I have heard of them failing. So I always carry an extra on board as well as a complete set of points, the old coil and a ballast resistor. I've never had to change them out but it was nice knowing that I could.
Thats what I hate and love about my old fashion motor. It's more likely to break down but if it does I stand a good chance of getting it back running at sea. Not so with an EFI motor.
