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.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
