"Thanks for the tips and info. Good to know.  Agreed, the resistance wire could have been subpar for sometime or something else.  Although the hotter spark of pertronix at the higher RPM's is an…"

"Thank you Russ. Much appreciated. The car was restored 15 years ago - needed nothing until now - I’m out of touch of contacts for parts. Much appreciated!"

"Call the business's like American Auto Wire, Lectric Limited, painless Wiring. They should have a source for the wiring, as they make up the wire harness's for these cars if you send them your old harness."
