Default Re: help with Mallory install

A picture would help. Generally, it's not a good idea to remove the "pilot shaft", because the distributors without them have a shorter support area on the upper shaft. You should have an aluminum timing cover with the provision for the pilot anyway. They are lighter and polish up nicely.

Check this link out (Thanks to "V8 Bob") : https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/...#post-12256959> The timing cover situation with 8BA's is more complicated than some may think.
