  • petronix for 6volt??

    Working on a 51 IH 220ci silver diamond 6 cyl. Want to upgrade the 6 volt positive ground points to pertronix unit. Is there a unit for this application? If so anybody done this, PN would be helpful. Is there an on line site to order? Thanks in advance.

        Points/electronic ignition conversion

        Velleman electronics makes a kit that uses the stock points but the electronic box handles almost all the current,point life is greatly increased,is repairable (none of mine have failed yet)and can be built for a 6V or 12V and maybe a 24V system.

        Velleman has website.If semiconductors are reversed during building if should be possible to use unit on positive ground vehicle but I have always changed vehicle over to negitive ground making it easier to install polarity sensitive devices(alternator ,stereo ect.).Can supply copy of schematic to anyone on request. The kits are not expensive($18 + shipping ).If I get the chance will try to modify a unit and post the results.

          The International is a positive ground and most petronix units are negative. They have some positive ground units but none of the suppliers so far can determine if any of their part numbers will work. One has suggested that maybe a chevy 6cyl unit may work? Am I making an issue of this positive ground thing, or is it maybe just switching around a couple of wires to make the chevy negaive ground petronix unit work on the positive ground??

            Vellman Electronics. They probably have a web site. Will give that a try. Thanks.
