Details

A legend returns - the tried and true Mallory Unilite Distributor line is back! The easy three wire hookup of the Unilite makes running a stock coil, a Mallory performance coil and even a Mallory HyFire CD ignition a snap. Supplied with a quality cap and rotor, the Mallory Unilite also provides a fully adjustable mechanical advance to dial in the perfect timing curve for a multitude of engine combinations. The Unilite features a compact housing that lends itself well to applications where space is a premium due to tight firewall clearance or blower applications.

  • Electronic ignition with a one-piece self-contained optical pickup and module
  • Quick and simple 3 wire hookup
  • Includes cap and rotor with brass terminals
  • Can be used standalone with high performance coils such as the Mallory Promaster Series or add on more power with HYFIRE CD ignition controls

“Install a Ballast Resistor Part No. PN 547 8214 in the wire between the ignition switch and the coil (+) terminal.

Failure to use an ignition ballast resistor (or coil with 1.4 ohm primary resistance) will eventually destroy   the UNILITE Ignition Module.”
