    I have the Mallory YLU624 on mine. They were there when I bought the boat 6 years ago. So far so good...

    Hi Rick,

    It's been a long time. I'm glad you are still active on these forums. I have the notes from our phone conversation eons ago. You mentioned the YLM's then. I can't find those anymore. At least, not easily. I was looking at this:

    Or the Sierra 18-5494-2:

    Do you like any of these? I'm hoping for an easy drop in. What about an newer ignition coil? One without an external condenser?

    Thanks again!!

    I was going to get those for mine, because, well they are pretty.

    But, I sold the boat so now I don't get to try them.

    Mallory YLM 624 AV on both engines (not YLUs).

    These use mechanical advancing mechanisms, and the tried and proven VR triggering.

    I have a 1986 3270 with the original Prestolite distributors VP BB225 motors (305's). The distributors were upgraded years ago (by a previous owner) with aftermarket ignition modules to eliminate the points. Fast forward to today. The advance mechanism and springs are really old (original) and causing problems with the port engine. I think its time to replace both distributors. Can you suggest a replacement with more modern distributors? Mallory? Sierra? I'm hoping for an easy drop in with minimum modifications.

    Thanks in advance...
Working...
