Petronix ignition installation

Quote

Hello Sonett Owners,

I am attempting to install a Petronix ignition. There is a short copper wire that is

attached to the distributors bottom plate and to the vacuum advance bracket. This wire

prevents the Petronix bottom plate from siting flat on this distributor plate. The instructions

state the Petronix bottom plate must sit flat.

Any ideas ?  Can I just remove this wire ?

Thanks, Mark

Looks like the wire attached to the bottom plate is the distributor internal ground lead. This ground is still required for the electronic system to work properly.

Thank you! I will remove this ground, and relocate it,
so the Petronix plate will sit flat.
