camaroguy_1967 this is a daily driver that is getting alot of TLC right now. I just got back from Afghanastan and needed todo some tuning on my car. It turned out to be more than I expected but it all needs to be done.

Thank You for all your input. It is a mallory unilite.

I do not get good milage b/c of the boulble pumper holley and my lead foot. And I love to hear that soothing roar under the hood.

CAD It will run fine. I have a Unilite. I recently disco'd the vacuum hose and plugged it based on advice from Mallory. A Mallory unilite is designed with 24 degrees mechanical advance. So if you set initial at 12, add 24, you got 36 total.....See my other post in Engines regarding a Mallory. Search for Mallory in the last 3 days.
Or email me any questions. There is a great tech support person at Mallory that will answer all your questions and he is very patient.

NorthStar Yes it will work but your mileage will get worse.
Thats what vacuum advance is made for, allowing more advance at light throttle to increase mileage.

distibutor mechanical advance only

I just spent about 2 hours looking through the knowledge base and did not see any thing about distributors with out vacuum advance pros and cons. I am currently running stock points and want to go to electronic. I have access to a Mallory distibutor but it doesnot have vacuum advance. will this work on my very mild sbc 350? It is in my 67 camaro.
