What's in the Box

Info

Get faster starts, quicker acceleration and better drive-ability from your Flathead Ford V8 with a dual-point Mallory distributor! Each version is full centrifugal advance (works with any carbureted set-up) and uses a remote-mount coil (not included).

The distributor uses all current production parts, so you won't be stuck searching for oddball or old-time replacement components. A better ignition is the single best improvement you can make to a Flathead Ford V8.

  • Use with either 12-volt or 6-volt systems
  • Full centrifugal advance eliminates the hassle of cumbersome factory vacuum break
  • Distributor gear not included
  • Early "crab style" equipped engines can be converted using #91015634 timing cover and #91015634 drive gear
  • Does not fit some stock fan configurations

When I received my Distributor the cap was damaged. As this part is discontinued I was concerned I couldn't get a replacement cap. I don't know where they found one but it arrived today. No Charge. Great service done in a timely manner. No wonder I buy most of my hot rod parts from Speedway.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Good distributor

December 21, 2015
The Mallory distributor is a direct fit for late flatheads and works well. I had several condensers fail within a year, so I installed the Pertronix Flamethrower III (P/N 7ML-1810 with coil #44001) into this unit and it works great - electronic ignition with a built in rev limiter. I would recommend that upgrade. If you buy the Offy (or Speedway) timing cover #56056310, the Mallory distributor shaft will fit down into the boss, stabilizing the shaft. That's another nice feature. The MSD ready-to-run has a shorter shaft, so it does not get that benefit.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Love this distributor

October 22, 2014
This distributor is a perfect application when using after-market aluminum heads and after-market timing cover. Because of the fit and finish of the distributor it's well worth drilling a hole for the cam gear on the shaft of the distributor. It looks really great.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Will this work with stock 6 volt sytem? I have a 1946 ford pick up that has a 8BA flathead ford V8 in it. All the electrical system is still 6 volt and in excellent condition. I am considering putting a dual carb offenhauser intake and a set of aluminum heads on the motor . I am finding out that if I do that there won't be enough vacume to run the vacuum advance so this would be needed. Correct ? Are there other alternatives available?

Some of the multiple carb intakes already have a port for vacuum for the distributor and if not a person could drill and tap if desired. In all that you have laid out if you don’t a radical cam you may have insufficient vacuum to start with. Dual point distributor number 5002527501 is all mechanical and would be the one to choose to use without available vacuum and works on 12 and 6 volt also.

This Mallory Dual point distributor can be used on your Mercury with the Merc-o-matic transmission but it does not have vacuum advance which was common to your engine. You will need to work with the tune up specs for your specific engine and time accordingly to work with the mechanical advance.

If you have a 49-53 Flathead engine installed in your 38 (what this distributor is for) there would be no fan interference. If you have the stock 1938 engine and fan, then you cannot use a Mallory distributor, the fan will not clear.
