    Electronic Ignition Questions, 73 02

    I am interested in dumping the points and installing an aftermarket electronic ignition system. I understand there are 2 basic types. 1. Photoelectric 2. Magnetic (?).
    Question 1. Which operating principal is preferred?
    Question 2. Which brand seems to be most reliable?

    Any discussion and/or help is much appreciated.

    Vic

    Hello.
    Can't speak from experience of installation, but only of use: I have a CraneCams Fireball ignition, a "hi-6" which uses a magnetic pick-up with the points. My ignition is also coupled with a CraneCams PS-92 coil. This set up works great. I have good luck starting and smooth ignition action at high rpm. I had good luck with CraneCams tech support as well as their web site which was chock full o' info. www.cranecams.com

    Regards
    cosine

    Checck Crane c
    Cams. They offer the XR-700 and the XR-3000. I had the XR-700 and it performed pretty well, the XR-3000 offers more spark power.
