Re: Accell wires & Distrib question
The spiral wrapped core wires are worth putting on another vehicle and trying out.
The plain graphite/ glass core wires aren't worth the time it takes to move them to another vehicle to test them.
Graphite/ glass core wires are exactly the same as the discount store brands for $20, so it's just a waste of time if you suspect them.
The Uni-lite pickup is about as undependable as anything I have ever tried to use as a module...
And I have used several dozen of them... Customers drag them in here all the time.
I won't warranty any engine that has a Mallory Uni-Lite module, or the Mallory Module/ Coil unit...
Just too unpredictable...
Mallory makes a magnetic 'Hall Effect' trigger to replace the Uni-Lite pickup, and it's dependable.
You can use that magnetic trigger on all factory modules, or the MSD module.
Any of the stock style high energy coils will do as good or better job than the Mallory coil.
(Mallory coils had to high of voltage, too low of amperage, and too short of duration)
PerTronics is making a flying magnet trigger to replace the Uni-lite.
Flying magnets are even more dependable than the Hall Effect triggers.
MSD used to make a hall effect magnetic trigger replacement for the Uni-Lite, but I think now that Mallory is making them MSD has quit.
Don't get me wrong, the distributor it's self is a good unit. Much better than the factory unit.
Most of them had much better bearings, and were billet machined instead of cast.
(I'm not sure you need that much distributor on the street, but it's your vehicle)
It's draw backs were the Uni-Lite trigger, module, and non standard cap and rotor.
I don't like using anything off of the race track that I can't go into a discount parts store and get running.
You almost need to have an extra module, pickup, cap and rotor at all times if you depend on the vehicle for day to day transportation.
Good luck, and let us know how it turns out...
