musclestang my unilite distributor has left me stranded 2 times in 5 years . It seems to last 2 1/2 years in my stang .

I have the spike unit , and the ballast resistor installed to protect it .

Just went bad a few days ago , and im looking on the net for others opinions on the ignition myself .

I see alot of people complaining about it . Im not thinking Im going to spend 110.00 for the replacement module at the local speed shop .

I took the module apart to diagnose it , and theres about 3.00 worth of electronics in there . Theres no reason for the high price they charge .

I found the bad relay on the board , unsoldered it , and went to the local electronics store to buy one . Only way I could buy the relay was if I bought in quantity . 500 piece box 1.85 each .

So .... im now thinking of MSD . But .... they have the same problems !!!! I've seen more complaints about MSD than anyone . Hell , even Nascar keeps a spare box in the car with a toggle switch ready

So what does a guy buy ??

lust4speed My Unilite module (in stock distributor) has been trouble free for 11 years of service. My second unit installed on another goat is relatively new, its only been in use for 8 years. BUT, the cost of the unit has become too high, and I now install other brands when I set up distributors for friends. But it was a cost problem, not a reliability problem that brought about the change.

unilite

Summit racing..mallory power filter..part #MAA-29351......$33.95 plus shipping.
i also recommend you keep a spare module in the car just in case it dies. most of the local part houses do NOT keep the module in stock. if it would die,your stuck it until you have 1 shipped to you.
happy rodding...

mallory unilite

anyone using the unilite should have the mallory power filter installed. this protects the module from power surges. i`m using a unilite for the last 6 years trouble free. with a power filter.

That's almost half the price of the whole distributor. The theory is simple, as it is just an optical interrupt, but the voltage operating range is so narrow that the vehicle can easily exceed this range and self destruct the module. I switched to a Ford Duraspark distributor controlled by and MSD 6 box and have never been more happy. I sold my new Mallory Unilite with a blown module to a guy who stuck a Pertronix device in place of the module. Good Luck.
Really? I have been running a Unilite for about 4 years without issue. Optical pickups have less variance in timing from cylinder to cylinder than magnetic.
You are probably generally right about Mallory. Their products have never impressed me as being good quality. Personally, I have had good luck with their products.
I have recently purchased an MSD billet distributor with a mag pickup just because my current dist. is getting old. This will be a good match with my 6A.

Just my 02.

the ? of all times

i have a mallory disty. and promaster coil. and im trying to put it in a 82 mustang 5.0 . i have 3 wires that come off the disty, (red +), (green-) and a brown (ground) . do i need to use the factory control module? if so how do i wire it to the coil.
because i have another 82 not riped apart i see 3 wires from the module to the stock disty. adn on the other side of engine is the coil with 12v going to it from ignition. what am i doing wrong?
i have tryed alot of ways to hook this thing up but no spark.
