Dual point dizzy to EI

Postby richlrob » Tue Nov 04, 2014 2:50 pm


I'm new here. Just got a 72 521. (I'll post pictures soon!) It's in great condition, all original, all gauges work, 87K original miles.

I would like to convert it to Electronic Ignition but it's a dual point distributor (CA model?) and I'm not sure what will work.

Would this? http://www.hot-spark.com/1-HS-HIT4-Distributor.htm

Thanks for the help,

I just put that very one on my 1970 521. Runs fantastic! I also replaced the original coil with an Accel high performance coil. Simply plug and play.

Wow! What a difference! You won't be sorry.
