    Pertronix Ignitor Electronic Ignition has been proven in applications ranging from tractors to race cars. The dependable, self-contained Ignitor replaces breaker points and troublesome stock ignitions. It's been called the "stealth" ignition due to a nearly undetectable presence under the distributor cap. Ignitor Systems install quickly, and there's no "black box" to clutter the engine compartment.

    Features
  • Maintenance-Free Electronic Ignition Fits Entirely Inside Distributor
  • Available for 6V and 12V Negative or Positive Ground Systems
  • Epoxy-Molded Module Resists Moisture, Dirt, Oil, and Grease
  • Triggers Most Multispark CD Ignitions
  • Stable Timing... Adjustment Not Needed
  • No "Black Box" to Clutter Engine Compartment
  • 2:1 Improvement Over Points in Current Fall Time for Greater Coil Output
  • Delivers Double the Voltage to Spark Plugs to Increase Horsepower, Fuel Economy, and Plug Life
  • Rotating Cobalt Magnets Activate Hall Effect Integrated Circuit... No Points to Burn, No Moving Parts to Fail
  • Legal in All 50 States and Canada (CARB E.O. #D-57-22)
  • Use with Flame-Thrower 40,000-Volt Coil for Optimal Performance

    1281 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ignitor kits are great, I have them on all my cars I bought the kit for my recently purchased 63 Falcon Sprint. When the kit came I popped the distributer cap only to find the car had a Pertronix recently installed just prior to me buying the Falcon, so I sent it back for a refund. All my cars have a Pertronix kit on them. Wouldn't leave home without one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked right out of the box Ever since i put it in to replace the points ive never had an issue with it, just set the air gap with the plastic strip it comes with and go. by far the simplest, most reliable upgrade ive done to the car. great quality product

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this Pertronix Ignitor kit recently and am very pleased with it. Installation took an hour, but that's because it went into a rear distributor on a l962 Ford F100 with the y-block 292 V-8. This means you remove the oil bath air cleaner, cover the battery with plasic as it will be rubbing your left ear, and reach waaaaay back to do the install. With a front mount dist it would take less than 30 minutes. The engine runs smoother and although I can't prove it, seems more powerful in the mid-range. It's all aces!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great and easy to install I decided to replace the points in my distributer and upgrade to the flame thrower coil to improve my ignition system. It was easy to install and eliminates replacing points and setting dwell. The Ignitor gap is set with a spacer that comes with the kit, so it's easy to do. I stuck with the original Ignitor because the Ignitor II and III will not work with stock wire, which I had recently replaced.

    I have installed the Pertronix 1281 into my 289 hi-po distributor. It just cranks and won't start but yet with the dual points it srarts. Please advise

    If everything is hooked up correctly it may have a defective module. Call us and speak to one of our techs to troubleshoot it and perhaps arrange a warranty exchange.
