If the original setting for your engine's year was 0.035", you could use 0.040" with a Pertronix ignition.

- If you have to stomp on your foot-pedal starter, either you, or your starter, or your engine, has a problem.

They say money can't buy happiness. It can buy old Chevy trucks though. Same thing.

I have the Pertronix and the Flamethrower coil aswell. I read you could go to a max of .045. I am running mine at .040 and it runs very well.
