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

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.

Moroso OE64011 Flathead Universal Spark Plug Wires Kit
(Part #91064200)
                        

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.

(Part #44740011)
                        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.

(Part #9101010)
                        

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
(Part #56056310)

PerTronix 40001 Flame-Thrower Coil, Chrome
(Part #44745001)
                        

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
(Part #500700)
                        

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.
