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.
