You wouldn’t think that points would be something that you would want to be selling any longer. But Crane Cams has been selling points replacement ignitions now for over 25 years

You might remember a few weeks ago we brought you a story on the Crane Cams XRi points replacement system. While walking the PRI tradeshow we came across the folks at Crane Cams and was reminded that points replacement systems are nothing new to the Daytona Beach, Florida based company.

“You wouldn’t think that points would be something that you would want to be selling any longer. But Crane Cams has been selling points replacement ignitions now for over 25 years,” said Terry Johnson. “It’s an optical pickup where you take the points, and condenser out, and replace it with a more accurate optical eye. The best feature is you never have to adjust it or replace it, it’s permanent.”

The XRi points replacement systems features:

  • Available for 4,6, or 8 cylinder applications
  • Available for the big three manufactures
  • Systems come with a built in rev-limiter
  • Installation takes 15 minutes
  • Everything fits under the OEM distributor cap
  • fully sealed from moisture and dirt

You might be thinking like we were, how much of a market is there really for this? “You would not believe the amount of cars that are applicable for this system. You have to remember there were so many millions of vehicles that were produced for so many years, and this is applicable for all of them,” explained Johnson.

Beyond the XRi points replacement system, Crane Cams also offers three other choices for points replacement: The XR700, XR3000, and the Optical Trigger Conversion systems.
