    As a reference for a future project, I am trying to get some feedback as to what type of distributor you are running...or plan to run. Thanks.

    By vintage Mallory I am referring to the YC series. (cast housings, etc)

    Aftermarket dual point referring to the YL and 25 series. (machined housing, etc.)

    Sorry, I don't fit into any of your categories, so I can't vote. I have a Cirello "Frankenstein" on my vintage dirt car ( my avatar).

    Tom, I'll continue to push the Mopar electronic as my favorite. Not a fan of the billet look.

    I have to say that I am somewhat surprised so far, as to the lack of interest in aftermarket dual point. I suppose in all reality, there would be not much to gain there over the stock distributor, other than the look of a Mallory.

    I am planning on a short deck desoto for my T, I have a cast iron 273 dual point, I was planning on using that with the Hot Heads intermediate shaft. If a vintage Mallory was available to me, I would be interested in that. Are you thinking about approaching mallory about a limited run or something?
    I would also consider a mag if I can find one for a reasonable price. Electronic distributors and pertronix conversions do NOT figure into my plans at all.

    Just toying at conversions of existing units. Bascially like the Pertronix that I did with the adjustable collar.

    I'm using a modified 318 Mopar distributor. But being a electronics geek, I'm using a '76 GM 4 pin ignition module to trigger the coil. I like unusual things like that. I mounted it under my dash so it's not seen.
