I'd highly recommend the Pertronix. I got mine from Retro Rockets in the USA for about $60. I think some people in Britain sell them for around 70. Retro Rockets are great to deal with and sill ship it to you for minimal postage, but be aware, there wa sas customs stamp on my parcel requesting about 11. The postman handed it to a neighbour and forgot to request it.

I was going to write a little article for this site on the fitting of the Pertronix. However, all the pictures i took were out of focus - as i had only just got my digital camera and didn't realise it had a macro setting.
