He Likes His Pertronix Ignition Kit
  Ben Parks, Austin, Texas: “When I did a mechanical restoration of my 1970 Jeep, the first thing I did was to replace the distributor points with a Pertronix ignition kit (www.pertronixbrands.com; ph 909-599-5955). I also installed a Pertronix ignitor coil. With the ignition slightly advanced, the jeep runs great and will start right up with the first turn of the key even after sitting for weeks in 20 degree weather. I recommend refitting points ignition in any older road vehicle, tractor or other machine with a gas engine.
  “I did have a problem with the jeep overheating when sitting still in traffic in hot weather. After upgrading the radiator, I looked around for a better cooling fan to replace the original 4-blade fan and found a Derale Performance 6-blade cooling fan. What a difference it made! The jeep runs cooler and will not overheat even in 100 degree weather (www.derale.com; ph 323-266-3850).
