ok, Points are good. I like them. But for some of use we want more spark. So here you are. Points eliminator from PreTronix. I installed mine in less then 1 hour. No more points. No more resistors. And a hot Flame Thrower Coil.

Here is the part numbers, I ordered mine from summit racing and I got my Flame thrower coil there as well. Is real nice never adjust points. Comes with a 30 month warranty as well.

For chevy 235 in 59 Chevy Apache 3100

PerTronix 1168 - PerTronix IgnitorŪ Solid-State Ignition Systems

PerTronix 40611 - PerTronix Flame-Thrower Ignition Coils

Comes with instructions and it will have you remove you resistor to the stock coil. Easy to do. Any questions just ask. Have fun.

There may be a post on this but I could not find it. So im just putting it out there for the poor guys like me.

Also For v6 guys out here pertronix replacement unit is 1162a for ignitor I and 91162a for ingnitor II. One guy on a diffrent site had it in his V6 for 20 years before it gave out on him.

I installed pertronix on my truck several years ago it's one of the best things I think to upgrade on the old trucks.You should make a TECH TIP and submit to the site.

Pertronix offers more than one part number for the delco distributor.

They have phone tech support that can tell you what part number to order for your set up.

Good luck

I'd suggest pulling the spark plugs and oiling the cylinder walls.

Does a firecracker bang any louder if you leave the match burning after the fuse is lit?

The murder victim was drowned in a bathtub full of Rice Krispies and milk.
The coroner blamed the crime on a cereal killer!

Have you verified you are still getting spark by grounding the plug wire?

What happened here? Someone posted about his success about pretronics, and bout 3 post and 3 years later, it suddebly becomes about ignition problems.

A good example of a classic time-warp thought-distortion phenomenon?

1954 3106 Carryall Suburban - part of the family for 48 years
1954 3104 5-window pickup w/Hydra-Matic - part of the family for 14 years
Z-series (54/55) GMC 350 (2-ton) COE - now part of Dave's family
- If you have to stomp on your foot-pedal starter, either you, or your starter, or your engine, has a problem.
- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler.
