Hi Ben,
          Rotor arm failer is very common with Pertronix. How ever it is not 
the pertonix it is the rotor arm being made in timbucktoo or usually known 
as India or China
If you install an old stock Lucas rotor arm your troubles will go away. I 
believe Ruth at ABC now carries brand new rotors that are a Lucas copy, I 
believe she gets them from the UK This has been a major problem with Jaguar 
owners. My friend John has been running one of Ruths new Rotors now for some 
time and his problem has gone. He was having rotors fail about every 6-700 
miles it got to the point that he could almost time when it would fail by 
looking at his mileage.
