In clearing my Storage up and little I found a Gem!
A used but good, Mallory Performance HEI Distributer Model #8548201.
It has a High Output Coil #29212 fitted.
I thought it only fitted the Small Block, but it seems that it will work on my Big Block too!
I looked up the Distributer, and Coil, and it seems they are good upgrades, however it is marked as not Smog Legal in California....
Makes no sense... its a higher performance unit that gives a better spark, and therefore better combustion...
I think I might "Try it" later...
Anyone have any experience or comment on these units in a Motorhome?
Is the Mech/Vac advance, etc ok for a Torque Biased Motor?
Anyone suggest a really good set of plug wires?
I am planning to get a new Coil, and Distributer Cap, and keep the used ones as roadside emergency spares.
I read somewhere about the stock HEI having modules that go bad..
Does this one have any issues or spares that I should carry?
Also found an upgraded internal part that they say gives a stronger spark..
Mallory Hyfire HEI unit...
