Pertronix DOES make a conversion for the 2.3. Just gotta do the diode fix.
Pertronix does NOT make a conversion for the 2.3. There's nothing wrong with a properly installed and set up set of points, what's the issue?[/QUOTE
The issue is that I put a new set of points in and the boat ran fine for about 5 minutes. Then it just started mis-firing and sputtering. I almost didn't make it back to the boat ramp.In the past, I've had to replace my points about every 2 years for it to run good for the boating season. What else could be the issue?
I was told the Mallory conversion kit #9-26900 would fit in my distributor.
This should actually be asked in a separate thread, but.................................... What would be a proper charging voltage ? I've been getting 14.8 at the battery when running. I thought that was too high , but my boat mechanic says it's not.
These kits replace both contact points and external condenser.Do you replace the condenser with the points? Are they set up using a dwell meter? Is the resistance wire working, do you have a lower voltage at the coil while running than while starting? Are they the correct points?

The dwell is set by the design of the new components. Yes, there is still a dwell with electronic triggering.
