    Hi, I want to install an electronic ignition distributor in my sons 74 hilux with 18R engine, I have been unable to find anything to fit it, Pertronix and others dont seem to make a kit for it....what have you guys done ? I really want to get rid of the points and condenser.also, Pertronix said if I could get numbers off of the distributor housing they might be able to help, I cannot find any numbers on it, there was an old sticker that was unreadable, if anyone has numbers please help...I think it is the nippondenso distributor, it has the adjustment knob

    I'm actually in a similar situation (74 Hilux w/18R)...looking for ignition coil replacement. I read people posting MSD and Pertronix Flame Thrower, but I cannot find the part number. I'm leaning towards the Flame Thrower. Can someone who has bought one let me know what the part number is? (Will the PerTronix 40011 Flame-Thrower work?)

    I called Pertronix technical support 909 547-9058. They helped me with the Pertronix kit to replace the points, haven’t received them yet, but give them a call they can help you
