  • Mallory YA-11A distributor

    Howdy folks, last night I was given a Mallory YA-11A single point distributor for the Model A and was wondering if anyone has any paperwork and possibly parts for it. It has only been 60+ years since I rebuilt one, and back then, parts were all over the place. My Google search turned up a LOT of information over there where I am still BANNED for the second time. It is the hope of it's owner that I can get it back up and running for him. It is in pretty decent shape for a few decades old and at least the shaft turns freely without wobble!!

    TIA for the help guys.

    I found points and rotors for mine on ebay. I have 4 or 5 of these distributors put up for future use. Bought a decent used cap from Berts several years ago. Have not found any NOS acorn condensors. Jim from Bubba's has a fix for them from what I was told. I have not checked with him in awhile for pricing to rebuild the distributors to get the advance working properly. Rod

      Thanks Rod, I will see if I can dig up his phone number. He didn't come up on my search.

          Just did some searching and it seems Napa MA3 condensor will work for the Mallory distributors. Not as neat looking as the Acorn style though. Rod

          Stocking up
          by jordanka16
          So, I intend for my car to last at least as long as me, to that end I have been thinking about extra parts to keep on hand. I know from reading that certain NOS parts are much better than any new ones, points for example. Are there any other NOS parts that it would be worth searching ebay for just to have on hand, parts that the repros do a poor job of replicating?

          These old engines are amazing - my story
          by ahirt
          These engines are amazing. The amount of abuse they can take and keep on ticking is incredible. Here is my story. I bought my first Model A about 4 years ago. Overpaid, didn't know what I was doing. But the engine ran and cosmetically it was sound so I figured, what the heck, I can fix anything that needs fixing. The first thing was steering; the car wandered all over the place. I had to aim it, not...

          GAV
          by Jamey E
          So, as we drive my son’s car, the GAV knob turns by itself. I’m looking for a way to possibly tighten the rod up to prevent this. For now, whoever is in the passenger seat is in charge of keeping it in the correct position!! Does anybody have a fix for this??

          Connecting rods
          by carolinamudwalker
          For you real mechanics. Why are we still using 90 year old connecting rods with stretched integral bolts? Inquiring minds want to know. Just looks like someone (maybe TOD) could come up with a connecting rod and use new hi quality nuts/bolts and still use babbit....

          Alternate Distributor
          by DaWizard
          Ok, a bit of background first.

          As some of you know I have been an advocate for the NuRex centrifugal advance and have been using one for 2 years without issue. Well, after reading the threads here about the advance and needs of the HC heads, I decided I would search for an alternate centrifugal advance distributor.

          See, the stock engine with the 4.2:1 compression heads are

          To re-babbit or not to re-babbit
          by Hank B
          I'm looking for some advice on whether I should have this engine rebabbited or not.

          I bought this car/parts more than 20 years ago. It was supposed to have been ready to assemble. I've learned otherwise on most every piece I have assembled and have had to restore or rebuild. Not complaining, just trying to give some perspective on what I have.

          I put the running gear back...

          Bert's Model A - Like a trip to Mecca
          by Roadster Rich
          In Denver meeting my first grandchild last week and I had to go to Bert's. First trip since they moved to the new site. I don't know how many of you have had the chance to go there (I know that Tom Wesenberg was there a couple weeks ago), but if you can ever get there it is worth the day to go. Very close to downtown Denver. Steve is great and lets you have the free run of the facility to look...

          1. We will be getting the block bored out to 60 over in a-couple of weeks. This motor was seized when we got the truck. It had 40 over pistons in it and we are going to go to 60 over. The pistons were bought from Snyder’s. My question is should we have all four cylinders honed to 4 thousands over or just numbers 3 and 4 and hone 1 and 2 to 3 thousands over. The reason I am asking is I have read...
