That's good news. This is the one I have with my MKII engine. I also have
two Mallory twin point distributors I was thinking about using -- one with
vacuum advance and other not. So, I plan to use the original distributor
with a Pertronix Ignitor II setup. I have the Ignitor II in my 260 engine's
distributor and the tach works fine. Thanks!
P.S. I still owe you all the numbers off the components of my engine(s).
Please rest assured that I won't forget! Cheers.
