Mallory's Magnetic Breakerless Ignition Modules are self contained module assemblies which have no moving parts to wear out. Using Mallory's time tested breakerless ignition circuit, combined with modern surface mount Thermal-Cladé construction, these ignition modules can drive both OEM and high performance ignition coils. Hookup is as easy as a three wire connection.
