Mallory Unilite Information

Some people a few days ago expressed interest in what a mallory

unilite distributor for an 02 looks like and if it fits good etc etc.

here's a pic of it in my car and then one with it opened up. you

can see the shadowbox rotor above the unit by the oil pressure


The yellow wireing is for the mallory hyfire VI ignition I have on my

car and a mallory promaster coil is just out of view.



The part number on the optical piece is 12289

The Part number on the distributor is 1017654

I'm not aware if any machining was done to it as it came fitted on

the car from the PO. So far at 7500rpm I have glitchless timming.

It is larger than a stock 02 distributor so the cap is different. I

have yet to try and source a replacement but I don't think it would

be an issue. Be glad to field any questions about it. Party On

I've found 3 or 4 places that mailorder the cap, rotor, etc. Performance Automotive Warehouse comes to mind. Mallory is now part of Mr. Gasket, I think. Last time I checked, you could still buy the distributor for the 2002, but it's a special order part, not in the catalog anymore.

On the driver's side, did you have any issue locating the plate without the brake fluid reservoir bracket getting in the way? From the size of those plates it seems like they might interfere with getting the ideal location.

Any idea what your car measures for caster? I see the adjuster is slid forward a lot on the one shown.
