Which Pertronix for '70 220 (gas)?


I'm new to the board. I've spent some time trying to find the right Pertronix ignition kit to upgrade my points, but I cant seem to find it. The closest match (on paper) is model 1847V for the '72 220. But, will this work for my car? What happens for the people who have the '68-'72 model 220's? I assume I'll need to do some sort of modification to a stock model which Pertronix sells. Does anyone know which model I need to buy and what mods I need to do? Thanks for all the help in advance!

I've seen the hot spark ignition kit advertised for my model year, but I'm hoping to stick with Pertronix if possible.
