Got another problem 351c
#21
I just removed a petronix kit from the car i'm working on. I installed it last year works fine.  If you interested let me know. The distributor that its in wasn't advancing the timing. The vacuum diaphragm was bad so we upgraded to a duraspark ignition.

Looks like you stayed with stock coil ,,,,,I got some more problems just found,,, look like a bolt is broke off in the exhaust manifold so I think ill go for a new cam ,lifters, T chain,, rebuild heads new dis,coil,ect... and carb

You had better make sure your cylinders, pistons, rings, and bearings are good before you put it back together after bumping up the performance, things that seem fine now have a habit of rapidly deteriorating when more power is applied to them. It's called project creep, one thing either leads to, or requires, something else.

 Sorry for the delay getting back on this.
The Pertronix Ignitor II part # is 91281 for Ford V8 cyl. I don't have a part number, but the coil is a Flame-Thrower II at 45,000 volts. The P II is red whereas the original P I is black. Both will work fine. However, the P II should be run on a full 12V. I believe the  P I can run on resisted voltage, but check on that. Pertronix make a relay so you do not have to cut the pink resistor wire, merely bypass it. Makes for an easy install. Wish I'd known about that when I did mine! Do NOT buy the Pertronix Ignitor III, Good electronics, bad construction.
Is your points plate grounded!!! Small bare copper wire which you can just see in the pic. Very Important!
This is for the STOCK Autolite/motorcraft distributor.
You may, once you have found the real issue for why it won't run right, need to recurve that distributor for optimum timing. We can deal with that later.
Here's a pic of the P II. Sorry it's not a clear shot, but you can see what it looks like.
