Electronic ignition 45partsdepot

Can anyone give me the pros and cons on 45partsdepot's electronic ignitions? I have not seen any discussion on this topic and wondering if they hold up or not. A friend said he thought they were used in Harley golf carts but not to good in V-twins. I know for a fact I can't trust advertisers.

stock, manual adv/ret on the bars.
it starts a bit better. but as the carb I have is a bit small on the starting circuit, it can be a pain...88" new motor. but I think I got that worked out
it does run much smoother, I think this is more due to dist. wear than it being pionts.

The '47-60 timer shaft bushings take alot of years use to wear out, but they do. I found out when using the static method of timing with a two lead socket and 6V bulb, as described in the '59-69 OHV service manual (page 5F-3). Whenever I arrived at the step of retarding the timer to make the light bulb go ON it wouldn't. The reason was because the timer shaft would laterally shift in both bushings and the slop allowed the timer shaft cam to move over, away from the spring tension of the single-points rider. Years earlier the static timing method worked great, then miles and miles later it didn't.
