I have a Sanger mini daycruiser with a Ford 460 in it with a Mallory YLM567EV distributor . I'm not getting any spark . I checked the grounds and all the wiring and everthing seem ok . Do the magnetic breakerless ignition modules go bad ? If so how often do you need to replace them ? I'm no motor head and really need some help . Any advice would be great . :)bulb

Yes they can, check and see if it is rusty or has any cracks in it. I am guessing you have checked for power at the coil?

I'm not much of a mallory fan...but they can/do work. Does your set up have a ballast? If it does take a multi meter and check the voltage on both sides. I have a module if ya want one cheap.. If you want to pay shipping there and back I may loan it to ya.

That red is difficult for me to read.

The modules in Mallory distributor's do go bad. Years ago I had to replace the module in my Mallory several times until I got tired of replacing it and I got rid of the Maollory all together.

Can you tell me what it was like when your module went bad . Was your motor running differant or did it just stop working . What did you replace it with ? Thanks
