Hey guys I need some help with my ignition on my 550. It has the bullshit ignitor that always fail, hard as hell to find used (if they work) and factory wants some crazy ass price. Anyone had any luck/looked in to "retrofitting" a points setup? Any help is appreciated. Thanks guys

They are a bunch of purists over there. I can respect preserving history, but I can't leave well enough alone. I use it only for info I can't find elsewhere.
