Immune to heat, oil, and dirt and installs in about 15 to 30 minutes with only two wires to connect. Complete kit with instructions. An ideal choice for the Cadillac Owner, restoration companies or DIY enthusiast "because they fit under the distributor cap".

Lobe Sensor Distributor

The Ignitor replaces breaker point and troublesome factory electronic ignitions with a dependable, self-contained and maintenance free electronic ignition system. The Ignitor has been called the "stealth" ignition because of its quick installation and nearly undetectable presence under your distributor cap.


Operating Voltage: 8-V to 16-V DC

Temperature Range: -50 to 300F

RPM Range: 0 to 15,000 RPM

Can be used with most point-type coils, optimal performance achieved when used with our Flame-Thrower® 40,000 volt coil.

Works great in stock point-type distributors as a trigger for multi-spark CD ignitions, eliminating the need for expensive aftermarket distributors.

No complicated wiring makes installation easy.

A solid-state electronic ignition system. "Never change points again!"
