Probably depends on how much you want to spent you can get some cheap and nasty kits from electronics kit suppliers. I have seen hall effect, optical or ones that use the points to switch a high energy setup.You could spend big bucks on a Mallory or similar setup but if you could get a later model dizzy from the same engine I would go with that. Also consider Murphy's Law and take into account how easily can you get it repaired etc cause when it goes tits up you will be halfway up a hill in the pouring rain at 11.00 at night.

Well might be difficult to find someone who has done both. I have the ignitor kit which fits in existing dizzy. Also looke4d at Crane system which is similar to ignitor but it requires new type elec ignit coil making the conversion a bit more expensive.....Cost for ignitor fitted......$356. Been in for 6 weeks or so....so far so good.

Thanks for the responses, sorry for taking so long to reply, the computer has been on the blink. I am looking at kit that has to be machined, can get for $330 fitted, seems the go if no one has had any problems. Thanks Col

I too have the ignitor system. Have had it for a year os so now and works a treat - best thing I ever did. No more missing and better economy as well. By knowing someone, I managed to get mine for $275. It's a simple job to put the points back if it packs up in the bush and everything fits inside the dizzy so no external black boxes. One word of caution though, the collar on the dizzy shaft just below where the cap fits on, needs to be turned down (accurately) to allow the magnet ring to slide down over the cam section. This is not something you can do easily at home unless you have a lathe. The package does not mention this on the box, but does explain it when you open up the instruction sheet. Maybe there are differnt dizzy's out there, but mine certainly needed to have that small mod carried out prior to fitting.
Cheers
Gerry
