I want an electronic ignition for my son's '72 Tii. I've been driving them since '71 and still have the "Tech Tips" book which talks about that set up. Anyone have a recommendation(s)? What is it? What else is recommended? Cost?Anything you can tell me. Many thanks, Jack Durrett II

easiest installation and very straight forward setup. About $70. All it does is replaces the points and condensor.

to fit a stock 72tii 008 distributor. Typically they are very easy to install. The one that is recommended for a 72tii doesn't quite fit right. You may need to do a little bit of modification to make it work.

I've got a 008 with a Pertronix in my 1600-2. It fit perfectly and was a 15 minute modification. I'm not sure what the problem others might have had would be.

profesionally installed. It was dione incorrectly including the rotor hitting it and also a wire touching the rotor, which caused to rub it down to the the metal, in turn it shorted it out leaving me on the side of the road. Back to points now, I keep spares including condesnser.

.....it installed easily enough and looked like a quality unit, but I

couldn't get the damn thing to work. I took the car to a reputable

local indy BMW shop and they couldn't get it to work either. fyi-I

have the 002 dizzy on a Tii motor. I wish it did work, but I'm

thinking I got a bad one. I returned it and applied the credit

towards my Ireland sway bar-that works. I might try again as I

think the concept is a good one. It just seems they have a quality

control problem. You'll notice that the board folk are almost

equally divided as to satisfaction-not good imo.

rotor to clear the pertronix "ring" thing that slips over the dizzy shaft...or something to that effect. Other than that it works great in the tii.

It's been working flawlessly for 5,000 miles now. Easy to install, too. No grinding.

Pertronix makes a different kit depending on your distributor. With these cars, you need to know what you have. The PO may have swapped a different distributor, the original 008 is nla.
