Owner of a 75 450 sl out there?

Does ANYONE out there own a '75 450sl ?!?---Having a few questions here about the points/electronic ignition system. Would be great to connect with someone, as these distributors are different than the previous/post 75 year according to Pertronix.

You will be more likely to find an answer to your question on the R107 forum. The Sales Forum is unlikely to yield an answer to your question.

I am sure someone here can help you:

That distributor has points in the bottom half. 2 sets if I remember correctly and they are called trigger points. You can see points in the top of the distributor and if you look on the front of the distributor you can see a wire harness going into the distributor about half way down and these connect to the 2 sets of lower points
I have this distributor in excellent condition/ Jim
