The trigger cylinder that fits on the center shaft of your distributor (under the coil) has a strip of green tape around it, as seen in the pictures above. DO NOT REMOVE THIS TAPE! The tape holds the pickups for the trigger in place and should never be removed.
A solid-state electronic ignition system. Never change points again! The Ignitor by PerTronix has proven itself for over 30 years in applications ranging from race cars to tractors. The Ignitor replaces the points in your 240Z (single point distributors only) with a dependable, self contained and maintenance free electronic ignition system. The Ignitor has been called the "stealth" ignition because of its quick installation and nearly undetectable presence under your distributor cap. Stock Distributor & Rotor not included.
