Default Mallory Merges with MSD

FWIW - MSDP group now owns Mallory, MSD, Accel, Mr.Gasket, Superchips, Edge, Racepak, Hays, Lakewood. That's 3 ignition companies under the group. Wonder if this will improve quality and tech or not ? Time will tell.

yes you are correct msd owns mallory and they sold there marine division to sierra .
i called mallory couple months back taliked to one of the techs real good guy he gave me the info i needed next step was to order 2 distributors he told me i had to go to sierra well that didnt work they couldnt find there own part number then i called cp performance perfect so i thought!!!! couple weeks later i called mallory again for a simple question tech refused to give me any info what so ever he reminded me the marine division had been sold to sierra then i asked him if his brain had been to them also then i hung up it even gets better now i go to install distributors and noticed one had alot of vertical play on the shaft that holds the rotor not good the 4 little plastic bushing that hold the advance weights in place were broke thought i would find them online not had to call mallory which i did spoke with scott lead tech? he knew exactly what i was talking about but refused to sell me them WTF told me if i wanted it to be fixed that i had to ship it to them to be fixed well thats not going to happen next step i ordered 4 little bronze bushings from mc-master-carr had them the next day all set now so if you need any sort of tech support from mallory marine your SCREWED !!!!!!!!

I have become fed up with several of those companies over the last few years some as far back as 40 some years. Know quite a few companies go down the tubes in various venues got bye bye when customer service goes to ....

Other than the plastic bushing being broke the internals are nice if it's not aluminum it's brass
