    So I'm considering using the Mallory distributor for my newly rebuilt Chevy 235. I really don't want to but I don't think the stocker with Pertonix II can keep up with my built 235. Any opinions? Thanks in advance

    or do the s-10 swap, cheap, pretty easy, works good, and looks almost stock. How "built" is your 235?

    If you built with your old dizzy how did you get rid of the crapy vac setup on it?

    Putting a Mallory in mine was the best thing I ever did! Ran great with it. Don't want to start shit with this comment, BUT my petronix crapped out on me in one year. Yes, some run them forever with no problems. But if you just rebuild your motor, put the money into a good dist. My thoughts.

    Bubba's has the hot shit deal for these motors (and others). Just do a search here to find details and a bunch of testimonials form those who have used them.
