Well I got some it solved. I found TDC and from another forum I was told how to get it so the new dist. lined up the way i'm use to. I put back in the old dist. and it worked fine, but when I put the Mallory back in the car was still real sluggish. Now is this a power issue? Someone told me it might be. I assume the stock plug to the HEI coil is 12V. The other thing is that the stock distributor plugs into the computer, but the mallory doesn't nor do I want it to. I don't think this has anything to do with it but I could be wrong. I also have an MSD 6A ignition box , now if I installed that would it help or just be in not solving the problem? Any help is appreciated.
