    Can't find the post but have seen it here - what points replace the Mallory dual points? The NAPA or Echlin were recommended as a better replacement. Any help is appreciated.
    This is for an older Mallory on a 59AB, 2 bolt distributor. Bubba didn't recommend converting this to Pertronix - it has a smaller/shorter housing than the current available dual point dizzys.
    Or, does anyone here have a newer distributor available?

    Did you ask Bubba at that time about getting points for you?, if Bubba don't got em, then good luck.

    Mallory has the points but the post here pointed out that they are not the best quality. There are off the shelf points (for a Ford dizzy maybe?) that can be had in a better quality - looking for the interchange info.

    I tried several sounrces to aquire something that would work in my Mallory YA-11A distributor and never found anything that fit except NOS mallory points at $20+ each. finaly broke down and bought 2 on e-bay. I had to sell a couple of my NOS Mallory rotors to break even on them. I still look for any Mallory parts in the blue and white boxes at swapmeets. Sometines you find a good buy on them. Rod

    Mallory used different part numbers on marine engines and another ones on cars, for same parts. I don't know why, but skipping to marine parts has helped me to find points for Double-Life distributors. (Them neat lookin' old flat-top distributors!!)
     
  7. I bought Mallory points from Belmont Rod Custom 781-326-3270. Maybe they have what you need. Also I found a part # in my notes - Jorin # 2330. I used these in a Mallory dual point conversion in my 324" Olds.
