72 LeMans Ignition

I have a 72 Pontiac LeMans with 350 and automatic. I want to replace the original coil and distributor with Mallory Unilite parts. The car has an Edelbrock Performer cam, manifold and carb.

Can I just plug and play the new parts, or are there pitfalls I should know about?

Any recommendations?

Thanks in advance (no pun intended).

Well, I guess it depends on the model you are putting in....I think there are different pickup options for timing or something like that

If I were you, I would call Mallory to make sure I have all the parts needed to make it work...

You just said Mallory Unilite parts...not sure what that means....I assume you mean distributer and ignition components...

If you have a regular small block distributer, it should be able to go right down the hole where the old distributer was...make sure you put the rotor in the same spot as the old distributer when you put the new one in.

You may have to make up some wires or splice in to the ignition supply line in some way.

With a unilite you will need to use the original resistance wire from the points setup as they don't like much voltage it will be plug and play.
