Re: Electronic ignition - 6cy 2.4 75hp

Hi
Assuming that your car is positive earth then I would suggest you do not bother I had nothing but trouble with the Dart. If you distributor is worn then I would suggest you get the Distributor Doctor to rebuild it. He is not cheap but does an excellent job.
