    Electronic ignition again

    The grounding of the points happens within the Overdrive(OD) solenoid. There two sets of points inside of the OD solenoid. One is for the solenoid- in -activator and the other for the momentary grounding as the solenoid shifts in. That set of points is only for the split second as the solenoid moves outward on the plunger. to shift in the overdrive. There used to be a post on repair of the solenoids for the R-10s in the downloads section here on the forum page but now seems to be gone. It explained the operation and repair of the solenoid. It was from a Hudson forum member but these R-10's were used in almost all American made cars of the 50's and almost all used the same OD solenoids. Maybe a web search on- Borg-Warner R-10 solenoid repair will get you detailed info on the solenoid. ?? DJ

    Electronic ignition again

    I call Pertronix about the momentary grounding of the units with the R-10 OD setup- while the tech was not up on this trans operation, I explained how the solenoid was grounding out the ignition points in the stock setup with the OD for an instant for the OD solenoid to shift in. His answer was that a over-rev limiter did the same thing and they worked fine with their electronic setups. So he saw No problems with this OD and the units. Some have had problems when they wired the OD solenoid functions different from stock, while using a pertronix setup were they had the solenoid trying to engage but did not let off the gas pedal immediately after turning the OD on manually. That will pop the fuse in a Very short time or just overheat and burn out the Pertronix if the fuse does not go out first. Again just my experiences for what it is worth. DJ

    Electronic ignition again

    Pertronix has worked well for me 8yrs. in my 50 Ply. 0 problems, period but I always have a rebuilt stock dist. in the trunk for insurance when out of town. I have installed several for friends in their cars and even in a boat once! Doug&Deb- - put the Pertronix in the motor and a serviced stocker point plate in the trunk with whatever tools needed to make a change back over If ever needed. My one opinion . DJ

    If the wallet allows get a 6" jawed vice. Next best of course 4"-5" will do ya. With the smaller ones a couple of 6-10" of 1/8" to 3/8" thick angle helps a lot!😉 Happy huntin'. DJ
