The PerTronix Ignitor 3 must be used with a low resistance .32 Ohm, 45000 Volt Coil
The Pertronix Billet Flame Thrower Distributor with Ignitor 3 Electronic Ignition Module can be used on all VW Type 1,2 & 3 Carbureted
Engines. The Flame Thrower Performance Distributor has all of the great aspects of the popular Bosch 009 & 050 distributors and a show
quality billet aluminum body. The Ignitor 3 Ignition module inside the flame thrower distributor ensures fast starts, better performance
nd economy along with a built in REV limiter and multiple spark output.
Note, Suppression or Spiral wound spark plug wires must be used with the Ignitor, solid core plug wires will cause electronic interference!
. Either the
PerTronix 45K Volt Black Coil
PerTronix 45K Volt Chrome Coil
are designed for use with Ignitor 3.
This distributor will not work with fuel injected engines.
Male Cap Terminal, Suppression or Spiral wound spark plug wires must be used with the Pertronix Billet Ignitor 3 Distributor! Solid core plug wires will cause electronic interference. Available here:PerTronix 8mm Male Cap Terminal Spark Plug Wires

Unless you have a tachometer (gauge), the distributor should be the only item connected to the negative (“1” or “-“) side of the ignition coil.
Distributor with Points
If your distributor only has one (most commonly green) wire, it has points and a condenser. Connect the wire from the condenser to the negative side of the coil.
Distributor with Electronic Ignition
If your distributor only has two wires (most commonly a black and a red wire) it has an electronic ignition. Connect the black wire from the electronic ignition to the negative side of the coil. The red wire from the electronic ignition will connect to the positive side (“15” or “+“) of the coil. Most importantly - the coil will have other black wires on the positive side which are “key hot” wires. It may look odd, but hooking up the black wire from the electronic ignition with the other black wires on the positive side of the coil will fry the electronic points.
(Note, the negative connection on the coil should never be connected to ground. Doing so will ground out the coil and it will not operate.)
