Default farmall h won't run

I changed my points system on the distributor to a Pertronix electric ignition on my Farmall H. And now the only way it stays running is if I hold the starter button in all the time. The minute I leave the starter button off it stops. I believe I have it wired correctly as the instructions call for. The instructions say to bring the wire from the ignition switch button to the black wire on the Pertronix sensor and the black & white wire from the Pertronix sensor to the negative side of the coil and the positive side of the coil to ground. This is a positive ground 6v system. Can anyone give me help? Thanks, Glenn

Glenn, If u have 2 post on the ignition switch, try switching the wire(one going to pertronix) to the other post. Sounds like u hve incomplete circuit, maybe as simple as the ignition switch. Posibly, the circuit is complete when the starter switch is pressed, then, incomplete when its depressed. Just a thought..........
