Modified Rotor


[b]Note:[/b] This modification was needed in 2000, but the sleeve is shorter and no modifications are required for the rotor.

  • The Pertronix ignition does fit in a 050 distributor, but a modification is required.
  • There is not quite enough space for the rotor to seat after the add-on sleeve is installed on the rotor shaft.
  • The solution is to file down the bottom of the rotor as shown in this picture.
  • The sleeve has four magnets embedded in it that triggers the hall-effect sensor driving the self powered electronic points.
  • There is no improvement in power with this arrangement, but the points always fire correctly and require no adjustment.
