Pertronix Ignitor for Alfa Montreal. Bought for 400€, only 2 month old, just used for a test, no mileage. Only the plate has some additional holes - but no harm to the function. Works just fine. Asking Price 200$

This appears to be an early unit. I worked with Pertronix to develop this kit, and the early ones used screws to attach the pickups. I THINK they later shifted to rivets for production units. Once perfectly adjusted, there should never again be a need to set the the phase of the two pickups.

Their first unit to me was all wrong. They were certain it was correct. I sent it back. Their reply, “oops”.

I never dug too deeply into their error, but am aware they had earlier done a RHD Montreal, and wondered if those used a left-side distributor mount, and opposite rotation?

Anyway, the Pertronix kit certainly simplifies living with a Montreal distributor.
