Looking for an old Mallory Double-Life distibutor for my 460 project. If you have a decent one laying around let me know. These are the Distributors with the capacitor on the side and the cap that has the wires going staright into it, no boots on the cap end.
Thanks

mallory dist

I used to work for the co. that owned Mallory, I believe you can still special order that distributor from them. The old "YC" style had the 2 pc. cap that held the wires in with barbs and a rubber bonnet between the 2 pieces of the cap. It also was a 4 lobe cam for the dual points, not the current 8 lobe cam of the "YL" series. And of course the really big external condenser. I have not seen very many used ones for sale in a long time. Once in a great while at a swap meet.... If you do find one all the parts are still available from mallory: points, etc. to get it back into top shape. Good luck in the hunt!
