Hi there guys,this is mick.I have speeking to the ferrari dealer in orlando florida the past few months.Well they called me 2 weeks ago and said they had a 308gt/4,$20,000.I think it had 50,000 miles 1976.Well,i line this test drive for the following week,2 days proir to this they call me and tell me there is a distributor problem, the car drives fine up to 5,000rpm then there is no spark on one side of the cylinders.The dealership dose not have the faceility to fix the distributor.They send it out 3 times and each time orlando re-fits it we have the same result.The place orlando sends it out to says the distributor is fine,and they would rather have the car on the premises so they can re-fit the distributor.NOW my guy at the orlando dealership says he can fit a DISTRIBUTOR LESS SYSTEM like on the newer cars,at a cost of $1,200 and give me the 2 existing distributors.. would love some feed back,Mick

If you intend to actually use the car and want to depend on it then the aftermarket ignition is the way to go. I changed mine over and no ammount of money would make me change back.

However Mick, Ed is correct in that you will probably have less problems with a electronic ignition. I happen to be a believer that the car came with the dual point ignition and should perform as it did when it was new. I intend to keep mine orig. unless it gets so bad that I will have to make a change.
