Mallory unilite dist
Wondering what people's thoughts are on these distributors. It's the mallory unilite with vac advance. I've used one in the 327 for 22 years and haven't had any problems with it.
Running another one just like it in the 427 I just installed. In trying to dial in the 427, ( timing and carb adjustments), I set my initial to 18*. Motor likes it. But after I plug in my vac advance, ( to constant vac), I get a reading of 45*. At 2200 + it runs up to 55. Not sure if these dist. have an adjustment inside or not. And, I am using a dial timing light. LOL
I've been reading on how many guy's hate the dial timing lights. But hell, how would I have ever seen 55* without it. LOL
Anyone well versed on the mallory?
