Well yesterday I got the Ignitor II and Flamethrower II onto my car
both fed with full 12 volts as the instructions suggested. The car
started up easily and in my excitment I forgot to do a timing check
etc. I took the car for a spin, and it died and would not restart. It
cranks well and I have a nice spark at the coil wire so I am thinking
that the timing is off. Does this sound plausible? 
    On every Pertronics I have installed so far the timing was retarded by 10 
degrees by the instalaltion of the Pertronics unit. That might be enough to 
not have a warm engine start depending on what the timing was to start with.
