Re: PerTronix Flame-Thrower Ignitor III Billet Distributor
As I said, components can be made anywhere, and our government allows the "manufacturer" to mark the part as "Made in U.S.A.", IF some percentage of the unit is put together here, in the U.S.A.
Now, just how much of the 'Ready to Quit' is actually "Made in U.S.A., is left to be seen. ANYONE can take an existing RtQ apart, then, make a video to show reassembly, and state what ever they want about the whole thing, now, can't they.
MSD, last year, sold a few magnetic pickups that WEREN'T American made, NOT Standard Blue Streak. they have now gone back to /American made pickups. Those offshore pickups came in the same packaging as the American made ones did, but clearly had "Made in China" on that packaging. almost 70 percent of those Chinese MSD pickups I checked, had the magnetic polarity reversed. I sent the Chinese ones back to MSD.
