Long story short, I have my Father In Law's old 2010. The original distributor is a Prestolite that he converted to a Pertronix electronic ignition # 15420-62. Tractor was missing so I decided to change out plugs, wires, cap & rotor as they were pretty corroded. He had a goofy shaped cap (side terminals) with hodgepodged wires. I ordered a Prestolite cap and rotor which looked nothing like what was on there. To top it off, dumb me did not note the plug locations on the cap. Questions:
Should the Prestolite cap and rotor still be used with the Pertronix ignition? It fits obviously.
Can anybody tell me how to find plug numbers on cap (or the order they are in). Neither of mine are marked so I have no idea which is 1,2,etc.
I've read that you should not use copper core wires for electronic ignition? If I need carbon, anybody have suggestions for wires?
As you can read, I am not a mechanic and would appreciate any advice. I attached a pic of the old cap. Thank you.
