View Full Version : Electronic Ignition

I have a 84 S & S with a 351 PCM. I was wondering if anyone has installed the Pertronix electronic ignition kit that drop in in place of the points/condenser? I have it in my 1958 Ford 841 tractor and it was easy install and really helped with starting, idle etc. Any input would be appreciated.

I installed the kit in my '89 351. It was easy and I am pleased with how it smoothed out the rough idle, especially on initial start-up. As Eastie mentions, follow BriEOD's step-by-step instructions.
