Hagerty's How To: Installing an electronic ignition kit

Few systems on an old car offer more potential for persistent troubles than the ignition system. Points, rotor, condenser, cap, coil and wires can and do fail. More often than not, the points are the culprit. A modern electronic ignition conversion can eliminate pesky points. They're a breeze to install if you know what you're doing. Check out Hagerty’s own Randy Clouse in this three part series as he installs a conversion kit on a 1967 Porsche 911S.

Part I: How to remove the ignition system and install the electronic parts

    Carlo The mail truck is cute. My dghtuaer likes that it goes by itself after you pull it backwards. The windows fell out within the first hour of play and the doors are difficult to slide open and closed. February 24, 2012 at 10:22
