<VV> Bench testing Petronix unit?

I'd say, putting my two cents in here, that since the Pertronix unit works off a magnetic field and 12 volts, you could test it by mounting the round magnet unit on a spindle and the pickup unit next to it, stationary with the same gap as in the distributor, you could then hook up the electrical connections to a 12 volt source. 
You'll also need a test light connected to the output wire (which normally goes to the coil) I could see that the test light would turn on and off as you rotate the magnet. 
Personality I've installed a Pertronix in every Corvair I've owned, as well as in my other collectible car (Slant Six Dodge Dart) and I've never experienced a problem with the product.
