You are welcome. It's very hard for me to decide what version of pertronix you have. I, II or III. See if the label says.
Your distributor and surrounding area is very dirty/rusty. It needs to be pretty clean. I think debris has fallen on it while you were messing with it. Not your fault. DO NOT TAKE THE DISTRIBUTOR OUT.
I am NOT a Pertronix expert or even close. You don't have a III, you have a I or a II, I'm guessing a I (original Pertronix). If it is, It's gotta go in the trash. Get a II. This seems to be the one. Double check.

Here's a pretty good pic of the label on the side https://drive.google.com/file/d/1MOv...w?usp=drivesdk

Looks like you did it as the instructions say. If the instructions are viable. D-57-2 is a California document that states that Pertronix does not reduce emissions but it can be used on 83 and older vehicles in CA. I think.

Pictures are posted as follows. Click "Go Advanced" at bottom of post. Click the paper clip at top of advanced page. Window pops up. Select pic files from your computer. Upload pic. Close window. You won't see the pic until you save the post and it goes live.

Sheesh $100 plus for the Pertronix, and some others were saying I should also have a Pertronix coil for a good match, I wonder if I should consider going back to points if it would be much cheaper. I'm not actually running the truck right now just wanna keep it working well and self lubricating the engine. If I did try to go back to points I might have to find or buy the plate the point go to ... don't think I got the old dist plate when I bought it.

Okay well the Pertronix coils are around $40 so for a total of around $140 I guess maybe the igniter might be doable lemme talk to the boss (My wife Dinah) and see.
