> Changing a condenser is as convenient as changing our a Pertronix.
I'll disagree with that. To change a Pertronix, you've got to mess with
wires running through the side of the dizzy all the way to the coil and
possibly fuse block. The condenser is wired right there under the dizzy
cap. Plus, you can walk into any filling station or auto parts store or
junkyard in the country and find a condenser that will work to get you back
on the road ... try doing that with a Pertronix.
If you find a VW Bug condenser (which are still common tho not as much as
they used to be), you don't even have to mess with that darn screw through
the point plate (and the potential for dropping it inside the dizzy housing
to wreck havoc when you can't fish it out). Just snip the wire for the
failed condenser, and wire the replacement directly to the coil terminal and
a convenient ground bolt somewhere.
Randall - one failed condenser in 35 years of TR ownership; nearest gas
station had a suitable replacement.
