    Mallory

    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?)

    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.

    Super sensitive modules.....

    5/5 95HATCH (AZ) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Mallory 605 Unilite Ignition Module (Thermalclad) (Automotive) Performed some elecrtrical rewiring of my engine compartment, leaving the distributor plugged in. Afterwords the car would not start, traced it down to the module, using the mallory test procedure on their site.Replaced with this new module and the car fired right up just like before!Im a little disapointed in these unilite modules, seems they short out very easily from other reviews i have seen online. I will definitly unplug the 3 pin connector before doing any work in the future.I did purchase and install the mallory power filter this time. Hopefully this one last's a while, i have heard of others replacing 2 or 3. At $80 a pop that can get expenive over time...Super fast shipping. Ordered from Amazon on friday was in my mail box Saturday! A+ job again amazon Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 14, 2010
