Speed Parts Preview: Mallory Releases Huge Array of Ignition Components


Holley is pleased to announce the release of a large assortment of new ignition products from Mallory, a truly iconic name in racing ignition history that’s back and better than ever. Included are three different types of coils, four new distributors, three unique spark plug wire kits, and an ignition box.

ProMaster S/S Coils feature efficient E-core windings designed to produce huge amounts of current without sacrificing voltage output. When used with a Mallory HyFire Ignition, they produce 300 milliamps of current and a maximum voltage output of 40,000. Compatible with capacitive-discharge ignitions and some stock applications, they come with a sturdy, durable housing, brass terminals, 90-degree spark plug boots, and special vibration mounts.

ProMaster Classic Coils are developed to meet the demands of today’s modern ignition, with a faster rise time and more spark duration than ordinary stock coils. Ideal for both inductive and CD ignitions, they have oil-filled construction to ensure a long life with no energy loss from arcing. ProMaster Classic Coils feature a glass-filled polyester case, spark plug-style secondary posts, brass contact terminals, and their own mounting brackets.

Chrome Canister-Style Coils are a noticeable upgrade from stock coils and specially designed to boost the performance of Mallory HyFire Ignitions. Special 100:1 windings provide maximum voltage buildup and are held secure and kept cool in the oil-filled metal canister. The tower assembly is molded from durable alkyd material with high dielectric characteristics, and wide-spaced brass primary terminals eliminate arcing and greatly reduce carbon-tracking.

Reliable Unilite Distributors are now available for two new platforms – Ford and Pontiac. The simple three-wire hookup makes running a stock coil, a Mallory coil, and even a Mallory HyFire CD Ignition a snap. Unilite Distributors come complete with a cap and rotor and feature a fully adjustable mechanical advance to create the perfect timing curve for an endless array of combinations. A QPQ-coated shaft guided by a ball bearing ensures long life, and the compact housing is perfect for applications where space around a supercharger or firewall is tight.

Mallory’s trusted line of dual-point distributors has been expanded to include two models for Ford Flatheads – one for 3-bolt-mount 1932-41 distributors and one for 2-bolt-mount 1942-48 applications. Both employ special heavy-duty points for increased coil output and RPM range, and both are fully compatible with HyFire CD ignition boxes and Mallory points-specific canister coils (part number 29219).

Pro Sidewinder Ceramic Boot Spark Plug Wire Kits make burnt plug-wire boots a thing of the past. Specially designed to withstand temperatures up to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit, their ceramic coating acts as a heat mirror, reflecting infrared energy and heat away from the plug boot. They’re available in three distinct versions – straight, 90-degree, and 135-degree – and ideal for applications where space around red-hot headers is at a premium.

The HyFire Ignition is a modern capacitive-discharge ignition that delivers powerful electronics in a vintage-style case that’s right at home in any classic hot rod engine compartment. Below 3000 rpm, the HyFire produces a series of sparks – not just one – for more power, a smoother idle, instant throttle response, quicker starts, and improved drivability. It provides a powerful spark from idle rpm all the way to the redline and features a built-in rev limiter that’s easily adjusted with rotary dials in 100-rpm increments. It accepts triggers from points, magnifiers, and magnetic pickups and is fully compatible with virtually any engine that has a distributor.
