Howdy All,

I have a question on the electronic setup in my distributor. My 1972 Midget 
1275 seems to have lost a little power at the upper end or the scale, (75MPH in 
4th).  I need to check the cyl. compression.  I read a warning that you should 
never crank the motor with the coil, or coil wire disconected because damage to 
the pertronix unit will occur.  Just how in the heck are you supposed to crank 
over the motor and it not start. Do I just pull the other plug wires ?  I sure 
don't want to damage the new electronic unit.  I do not have the old guts from 
the distributor.  Also I did not hook up the vacume advance to the distributor, 
is it needed ?  Now I need to find a compression tester to use...
