Pertronix Compatibility

Has anyone installed a Pertronix in a m180.945 engine? I can't figure out whether the 1864A or 1867A kit is the right one. The 1867A is $15 cheaper, so I would like to use this one if possible.

My distributor is a Bosch IFUR6 0231116038. The Pertonix site states that the 1867A is for Bosch 0231184001 and the 1864A is for Bosch 6 cylinder distributors.

I am not a spokesman for Hot Spark ignition but when I upgraded my system and cut out the expensive ICM I went with Hot Spark and for just under 40 bucks for the distributor upgrade and 50 bucks for the high voltage coil I have very blue reliable spark.
