We are in the midst of renovating our site!

Our online store will re-open on WEDNESDAY AUGUST 12th with some exciting updates and improvements to your parts shopping experience.

If you already have an order in process with us, don't panic!

We are still processing and shipping orders from our warehouse as normal even while our site is offline.

We sincerely appreciate your patience while we are doing these site upgrades.

NOTICE

Supply of many sought after parts is limited. Covid ripple-effect economic disruptions have hampered our company's ability to restock items reliably. We are doing what we can to recover from the changes to our industry and the effects they have had on our business, but currently a lot of shipments are delayed and our response time to emails are slow.


Please do NOT email to inquire for stock status. Instead, to get stock status, place an order request, and the items will ship if they are in-stock, OR we will post an itemized stock status for delayed items typically within 2-3 business days. Placing an order request effectively adds you to the reservation waitlist for out of stock items. You can cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not special order or made/machined-to-order.


Please only continue if you accept that your requested items may not ship right away, and that shipment might be significantly delayed by unpredictable supplier-level backorder timeframes.

Thank you for your business and understanding.

Pertronix Second Strike Digital Ignition Box (CDI: Capacitive Discharge Ignition) With Adjustable Rev Limiter, Model 500

Pertronix Second Strike Digital Ignition Box (CDI: Capacitive Discharge Ignition) With Adjustable Rev Limiter, Model 500


 
Pertronix Second Strike Digital Ignition Box (CDI: Capacitive Discharge Ignition) With Adjustable Rev Limiter, Model 500 provides a reliable multi spark to catch those occasional cylinder misfires. Fully adjustable rev limiter protects your engine too!

This is compatible with points, and all points replacement devices.

Rev Limiting Rotors work, but are non-adjustable and are not cheap (You have to buy another one every time you buy a new rotor (Cha-CHING!)!


The Rev Limiter function takes out individual ignition strikes a little at a time to safely prevent dangerous over-revving, and to prevent plug fouling. It's easily and quickly adjustable in increments of 100 RPM. Excellent Unit!

This digital micro-controller based unit provides a much greater accuracy (+/-0.01%) over analog systems. There is no need for old resistor style pills or chips, our easy to use rotary switches adjust the RPM limit to an ultra fine resolution of 100 RPMs. Random spark stealing method provides superior control of rev limits and a rapid response time to over rev limit events, preventing engine failure.

Once the established RPM limit is reached, random spark stealing starts within one spark, reducing plug fouling common with repetitive stealing type limiters. Rev limiters come with multiple analog filters and one digital filter to prevent coil noise interference from affecting the established rev limit.

A lot of CDI's are "overkill" and simply provide what we feel is "too much" spark energy, but this unit gives a nice boost in ignition power without being stupid.
