         You could be right. I was paraphrasing a Moss Motors Spring 2000 
bulletin comparing Crane's and Pertronix's benefits and drawbacks. I have 
no personal knowledge of the Pertronix. I do know that in other cars where 
EI Hall effect is OE, bad bushings are often the reason for selling 
remanufactured distributors. Also, those cores that I've seen have had more 
than a "little wobble".
