    Electronic Ignition installed backwards 350 5.7 Cobra engine 1988 2556-gctid815816

    Thought I would post this for someone else. If you are having idle issues after installing a Pertronix electronic ignition plate from a points distributor look at the rotation of the rotor. I made the mistake of lining up the screw holes for the new electronic plate and locking it down. If the rotor is clockwise the screw holes line up. If the rotor is counter clockwise as was my engine - the plate is rotated and only one screw hole lines up and you only use one screw. In typical MALE FASHION if I would have read the instructions I would have known this :-)! Issue one resolved regarding the poor idle. Now it idles great and I can finally dock it without stalling with easy shifting as well.
