Re: Mallory sbc to 8BA 4 lobe cam issues

Sorry for confusion. Yes I mean distributor & yes that’s all the switch does. I do have some old Mallory coils but not sure what this distributor needs. I will post coil pics also.

Re: Old Isky Camshaft

Great cam since you already have it. Up there close to a KiWi-L100 that’s the opinion of those that have actually used both.
Enjoy.

Re: 48 truck engine

Jack an 8BA or 59Ab. Canadian 48 trucks shipped to New Zealand had 59Ab engines with studs of course. Interesting engine. Always a new twist with these ole flattys.

Re: Let's build a drag race 8BA engine

Re: Ford pilot lifters

The U.K. Pilot 80g. Vs. US. 43g. Heavy. I don’t believe you would have any problem running 8BA or Chevy valves with these lifters. I purchased these in the USA some years ago.
