Jan,
Where would an SOB like me (in Australia) get a Pertronix for my Husky as its dist shaft flops around too much eating away the cap posts.

One of our NZ listers, shocked by the NZ agent price ordered direct from USA on internet.  About half the price.

I thought the price in Australia was excessive.  But I suppose I qualify as our resident tight wad :))

Australian & NZ agent for Pertronix is Pro Quip

There is a Pertronix distributor distributor :) in Sydney, but they cost a bomb.  I know that John McRae is running a modified Nissan Bluebird dissy in his Hunter, but I don't know whether you could use the same on the Husky.
Not sure that John is on this list anymore but you could join the Yahoo hillmanhunters group (which he runs) and contact him that way.

Cheers, Vic

About 3 months ago I purchased a Pertronix kit for my Triumph herald.  I found the prices from the NZ supplier were very expensive (around NZ$300).  I managed to pick up one from the USA from http://www.vintageperformance.com/retrorockets/index.htm came to NZ$110 landed to my door, delivery was in around 7-10 days if I remember.
Great product, took all of about 15 minutes to install and noticed a difference straight off.
