Mel Posted November 26, 2010 Report Share Posted November 26, 2010 '66 with the 327/300 Chev. motor. I'm thinking of putting on an electronic ignition (EI) setup. A local guy who builds racing engines assures me that, for about $100, I'll have a much better ignition system -- more reliable spark, better advance curve, ... and that it essentially sits inside the distributor cap. He also says I just need a 12v supply. With the 'thermistor' wire from the ignition, I'm getting about 4v to the coil at 'run', 12v on 'start' circuit, as normal. So, a couple of questions: 1. Experience (+/-) with a particular type of EI setup, 2. The tach sending unit is driven by the points. Is the original tach set up compatible with an EI setup? Thanks.
