Mallory Cap and Rotor for Olds Rocket
« on: March 13, 2009 8:47 PM »
I've looked for hours online for a cap and rotor for my Mallory Dual Point Distrubutor. NOS ones don't show up very often. So, I sat at NAPA and looked at the Echlin picture book for a half-hour. They actually list the cap and rotor as for the Mallory ZC and _C distributors. Neat. So, without further adeu:

Echlin

Cap: MA5

Rotor: MA7

Enjoy.

I thought if your distributor cap was in more than 1 piece it was broken, now you're telling me it's cool?  Are bullet holes in again?

As far as Todd and i know the two piece is no longer made, at least we have not been able to find them that is why he asked it it was the two piece. Todd has the two piece cap on his A.

the top piece is where the wires go in and they go into a rubber gasket.  when the top piece is applied to the bottom piece and screwed together it makes a tight seal holding thewires in place and keeps water out.

You're right, the one piece is lame...especially on a hoodless car.

Thank you for the info Todd.
