Q & A

What's in the Box

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

Moroso OE64011 Flathead Universal Spark Plug Wires Kit

Finally, a set of 7mm supression spark plug cables as a universal plug wire kit for your Flathead.

We started with black, 7mm suppressive core wire that will go through your looms. The 90° black plug boots are installed but you have to install the straight or 90° distributor ends. We even put in enough wire to place your coil on the firewall. Comes with straight boots for the distributor end of the plug wire. Black only.

Two sets of boots/terminals are included, one set for conventional socket-type caps and one set for HEI type caps. The set includes 9 cables, the longest being 51" and the shortest being 24". Use eight for the plugs, one for the coil.

Learn how to properly attach new spark plug terminals and boots by reading our tech article. How to Install Spark Plug Wire Ends.

Pertronix 45011 Flame-Thrower II Ignition Coil, 6 Volt, 0.6 Ohm
                        The hotter the spark, the easier your engine will start, and this 45,000 volt coil is just the ticket to a quick start! Has 0.6 ohms of resistance. Black case for a stock look.

6 volt coils can be used with 6 volt point systems. If used with 12 volt point systems, it should have a 1.00 OHM resistor added.
1949-53 Flathead Distributor Spacer

This is a 1.40" spacer that is used to provide proper drive gear spacing when using aftermarket distributors with our Flathead front timing cover # 910-15632.

This spacer is needed for these distributors: MSD 547-8573 and Speedway 910-1000.

Offenhauser Flathead Ford Timing Cover

If you want to run early heads on a late model flathead, you don't have a way to clamp the distributor down...until now. This cover has a distributor clamp built in.

  • Direct replacement on 1949-53 engines
  • Upgrade for 1948-and-earlier engines running a 1949-53 camshaft
  • Built-in distributor gear oiler
  • Cast aluminum cover

This gear attaches to the base of the distributor shaft on 1949-53 Ford V8's. Replace your worn, damaged or missing original gear with this top quality new one! Roll pin not included (reuse original pin).

Note: We recommend you replace the cam gear and distributor drive gear at the same time.

PerTronix 40001 Flame-Thrower Coil, Chrome

The hotter the spark, the easier your engine will start, and this 40,000 volt coil is just the ticket to a quick start! Its higher voltage allows larger spark plug gaps for added power, smoother response and better fuel economy. These coils are internally resisted so they are compatible with many inductive ignition systems.  

  • Smooth chrome finish 
  • 40,000 volts
  • For use with 12 volt inductive ignition systems.
  • 1.5 Ohm primary resistance
  • Legal in all 50 states and Canada
Mallory Ignition 700 Ballast Resistor, .75-1.50 Ohm

Stabilize coil current and prolong point life with Mallory ballast resistors. Computer-wound to ensure resistance value. Premium ceramic bodies provide maximum durability and superior heat transfer. Recommended when a new coil is installed.

Mallory Unilite distributors include self-contained modules that require a ballast resistor, loom resistance wire, or internally resisted coil (ex. when using HyFire CD Ignitions). Using a heavy duty porcelain resistor and threaded terminal connectors, this resistor is rated at 200 watts and 0.75 (cold) – 1.5 (hot) ohms.
