I've done two recently - one on a 4000 4 cly (62 if I remember right) and one on a newly acquired 8n. Straight forward.

Thanks, got it Done, Seems to Idle better. I decided to go this Route because I have Had Terrible Luck with Condenser's. Went ahead and eliminated the Ballast Resistor and upgraded to 3 OHM internally Ballast Coil why I was @ it.

Great. My 4000 ran like a top once I changed it. My (new to me) 8n is still a work in progress.

Re: Pertronix 1244A

I've completed the modification on an old Willys Jeep CJ2A and on my Ford 5000. The only issue I had was that driving the sensor over the distributor post in both cases took a bit more of a push than you would expect. In both cases I used a large socket to apply an even pressure and hit it with a dead blow hammer to drive the piece home.

The rest of the install is simple.

You'll love the result.

Big Ol' Fords.

I should also note that when I installed one on my 8n, I had to grind/file the mounting plate just a smidge to get it to clear one of the distributor plate screws.
