Default Need a electronic ignition for IH Tractor

Looking for an electronic ignition for an IH Tractor (British made - Lucas Electrics). I recall several mfrs however cannot remember their name. Thoughts and experience appreciated.

Pertronics (formerly Per-Lux) makes simple electronic ignition conversions for a variety of applications, but I don't know if they have one for the Lucas. A search on Google will get you a bunch of sources for Pertronics.

If they don't have one for your application, it is possible to take a basic Pertronics unit for a Chevy or Ford distributor and re-work it to fit in your distributor. If you need to go this route, by sure to mount the unit so the rotor is properly "phased", i. e., that when the module produces a spark the tip of the rotor is near the desired high tension output terminal in the distributor cap.
