    Mallory distributor do i use it?

    Ok here's another one. So in my engine I have a Rover distributor, it already has a Luminition electronic conversion kit. Some time ago I bought a Mallory duel point distributor, my friend who was there at the time rightly said "grab that and get an electric conversion kit". Ah! Now it appears the Real Steel kit is for a 25 series, this is a 27 series. All attempts just now to locate one say 'unavailable'. It's possible Mallory no longer make them so... the question. Do I keep on with the quest to convert the Mallory or is the existing one as good - just doesn't look as trick? I should add I'm not going for power here, this will be a standard rebuilt engine just balanced and running a Holley 390.

    For what it's worth the kit I needed is 61010M.

    Mallory went bust and then MSD bought the name and has brought back some of the Mallory products, possibly the reason why you cant find a kit.

    If he old one works leave it?

    I'd say carry on with the original until it packs up! Pertronix do a great conversion for the 27 series and uprated coils to go with

    Thanks for that Ricky, i should point out (see what i did there?) That this is a Rover dizzy converted with a Luminition optical kit not the Lucas electronic dizzy. I know about the fabled pack up rate of the Lucas unit, my brother lost his on his Rover once.
