    Even with the surge suppressor the recommend you to buy

    1/5 David Dicus - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Mallory 605 Unilite Ignition Module (Thermalclad) (Automotive) first one I bought it was around $65 lasted a few years. I bought this one for $105 oct.2015 and it was friedin less than a month. Even with the surge suppressor the recommend you to buy. Too much trouble with the quality of Mallory ign. products lately. What happened to the company? Went back to my breaker points and it runs great.. Don't know if there is any quality after market products any more. I'll put up with changing and gapping my points more often, I can do that any ware if need be. But your truck just stops, no spark and it's -15*F and your 50 miles from any ware, your screwed. Or you try and push it out of the middle of an intersection by your self that's not fun either. Points start to tell you when they are going bad, you can fix that. Until a reliable, dependable breakerless sys. Mallory window sticker is off my window now. I would not recommend this to anybody.

    Mallory joins the list of poor products

    I got about 100 miles out of my first Mallory module before it died. I am trying a new one with the power filter installed this time. I find it astounding that Mallory would sell an expensive product that is no vulnerable to voltage spikes when the product is PART OF A SYSTEM (A DISTRIBUTOR) WHOSE VERY PURPOSE IS TO CREATE VOLTAGE SPIKES.Somebody else suggested replacing with a Pertronix unit - Believe me - avoid those like the plague as their rotors develop invisible cracks that will short the high voltage ignition pulses through the rotor to the distributor shaft. If somebody else has a suggestion for replacing Rover V8 ignition systems please suggest it. The options I know of are (1) Original equipment Lucas unit (poor quality and very expensive), (2) Pertronix crap, or (3) Mallory - which used to be a great American company and is now I don't know what. I guess at least Mallory was nice enough to post a video explaining how to diagnose a failure if (rather when)... 1/5 John Wiley Horton - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Don't be stupid like me

    1/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Mallory 605 Unilite Ignition Module (Thermalclad) (Automotive) There is a reason these guys have gone out of business. This ignition module is too fragile for a DIY mechanic. You have to install a ballast resistor in the system and even then any stray voltage spike will fry this unit. Took me three units to finally get the message. Don't be stupid like me. Get a different distributor. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 2, 2016
