First of all, I assumed (I know what that means) that the garage and the
writer had checked the fuel pump, and other electrics.
I, too, prefer a points distributor, but for an owner that has a commercial
garage fix his car, an electronic unit is less costly in the long run. The
Crane and Petronix units are very reliable. Also, I don't believe I said
scrap the distributor, I said it was shot, and to get an electronic unit. I
don't replace parts will nilly, but when a car is at a mechanic, who is
charging $60-90/hour, who does not know the car, it is often cheaper in the
long run to replace the parts.
