Pertronix makes an Ignitor part number 1844 for the Bosch distributor part number 0231110041, but it only seems to come in a Negative ground version. But my Giulietta is Positive ground, not Negative. I see some members have said good things about the Ignitor, but has anyone installed one in a Giulietta with a Bosch distributor?

Thanks for the reply. Pertronix will make me a special order unit for positive ground, so I have ordered this.
p.s. I'm a 911 driver too, have had 3 of them now.

I fitted the Pertronix Ignitor easily, apart from one small problem. The long style of rotor used in the Bosch distributor would not push down onto the shaft quite far enough to get the securing bolt in. I had to carefully grind a little off the base of the bakelite rotor to get the bolt to go in. Otherwise, it was a very simple job. The timing did not seem to have moved much, although I did reset is a little using the F mark on the flywheel. The car now is starting and running just great.
