My Cloud I had an Ignitor electronic system until today - when some poor advice caused its demise.
The manufacturer, Pertroniks, make an Ignitor 1 still
Does anyone have any advice regarding this one's replacement?

Wayne, I have a spare plate if you ever want to restore it to original. What is the Chassis number?

Wayne, I think the PerTronixs is units are supposed to reliable and good value for money.
Were you happy with it ? How did you fry it? Are you likely to do it again?

I replaced the Ignitor and voila - engine running well, but running way rich, fouling plugs very rapidly.
The cause for this has yet to be found

I'm trying to remember back over thirty years since I had a Silver Cloud I. I think it was a Lucas distributor and points. Was your electronic ignition added later? In which case I would recommend taking it back to original. Isn't the Silver Cloud I Positive Earth? So a simple short may have cooked your electronic module.

Hey Mr. Hannah, I hope Cloud I's aren't positive earth. I'm only used to negative earth and in years to come when working on mine, will come a guttser.
Damn, yet another thing to check with the old man, who gave me his pride and joy as an early part inheritence
As Hilda is white and runs a Holden LJ rotor button, she is not in concours contention. I am interested in electronic ignition, along with other things like AM/FM replacement to the inside of my radio.
