  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

I have a 64 tempest base model with a 215 ohv six cylinder. Any suggestions on the best electronic ignition kit for me? Thanks, Dan

I am going to interpret you question to mean eliminating your points/dwell and replace it with some sort of breaker-less ignition system.

I have a Pertronix Ignition II in my distributor in my 4555 that replaces the old points system. Pertronix has the ignition III kit out now. It utilizes your stock distributor with very little modification. Removing the distributor makes overall installation easier. Pertronix has kits for 4, 6, and 8 cylinder distributors. I certain that Accel and/or Mallory have kits as well.

I am sure the Mallory unit would work a lot better for JUSTA's V6 if he didn't have such a large hole in his hood to allow large quantities of water to come into the engine compartment!!!! :picard:

After converting my Mallory duel point to electronics, I was replacing the 115.00 module like gas in the tank. Had to install a (basicly surge protector) module, But that doesn't like to get wet.
