My Petronix stopped working on me yesterday and needed a tow. I've had it about a year, but have only put about 1k miles on it. I don't plan to get another one; just don't feel I can trust it. Of course points can fail too, but they give you a little warning before they die (unless it's a capacitor). Much cheaper as well.

I was thinking of having a backup Petronix in the car just in case.
The only problem is that when they fail you are dead on the road. Or you could always carry a spare distributor ready to go in the boot like some people.....

Re: [Philly_MG_Club] Fwd: condenser failure
Good idea I think I will
Or, you could switch to Petronix Electronic ignition and never have to worry about condensers again. I switched in 2004 when my engine was rebuilt and have never had a problem since.
Gerard some the same thing a year ago. There are supposedly some better quality ones being made in europe but have not actually hit the market yet. I am waiting with baited breath since i still run points in both of my cars.
