Customer q:

I bought and installed a Pertronix 1181LS Ignitor in my stock distributor and still have the stock coil also. I recently read that I shouldn't run the Pertronix with an internal resistor coil. Do you know if my stock coil has an internal resistor? And what coil does not?


ac = Yes

drivewheel = 2WD

engine = 5.7 L (350 cu in)

fuel = Quadrajet carb

make = Chevrolet

model = Corvette

pwrbrk = Yes

pwrstr = Yes

trans = TH400 Automatic

year = 1972


This can be used with a internal or external resistor. You must ensure you are using a points style coil and not an HEI coil. 

If you are using your OE points coil with this ignitor kit, you will be fine.
