Replaces Entire Breaker Plate - Never Adjust Points or Timing Again!

Electronic Ignition Conversion Kit  for Centrifugal-advance 8-cylinder Mallory Distributors

 

    The Hot-Spark electronic ignition conversion kit replaces breaker points and condenser in the distributor to provide rock-solid reliability. With the Hot-Spark electronic ignition, dwell and timing are always spot-on accurate.

 

    No matter how strong your engine is, you won't get the most out of it without a good spark. The stock, points-based ignition system used technology that dates back a century - to the Kettering system, which was introduced in the 1910 Cadillac. Even though you can adjust breaker points for near-electronic ignition performance, they will burn and wear within a few thousand miles, long before the recommended replacement interval. With points, the timing will drift; power and fuel economy will suffer.

 

    The Hot-Spark electronic ignition conversion kit delivers a strong spark every time and is maintenance-free. You'll notice quicker starts, more top end power and a little gas mileage boost. It's as easy to install as points and condenser!

 

Advantages of the Hot-Spark electronic ignition conversion kit:

 

3MAL8U1 - For 8-Cylinder, Non-Vacuum-Advance Mallory Distributor with Points

The 3MAL8U1 ignition kit replaces the entire Mallory 8-cylinder marine distributor's breaker plate, along with points, condenser, etc.

 

The 3MAL8U1 ignition kit is designed to fit Mallory 8-cylinder, non-vacuum-advance marine distributors only; it won't fit distributors with electronic ignition already installed.

The 3MAL8U1 "breaker plate" is the same shape and size as the original breaker points plate.

The 3MAL8U1 electronic ignition conversion kit must be used with a coil that has at least 1.5 Ohms primary resistance, such as the HS17HEC high-energy coil.
