where does this go?
DTT BOTM WINNER
I believe you are correct sir! Hadn't thought of that. That 4 lobe unit worked like a normal single point unit x 2, though I never fooled around with one. I think higher rpm was the goal like you say though the rubbing blocks should last twice as long as well as the contacts. "double life" rings a bell, but I don't remember that being the claim to fame. I remember the 8 lobe as a pita to get right, though I had a whole lot less experience back then!irk miller said:There are two types of dual point distributors- 4 lobe and 8 lobe. Mallory, iirc, made a double life 4 lobe that fired alternating points, so each one fired 1/2 the cylinders. My understanding, so correct me if I'm wrong, was the 4 lobe wasn't for dwell but to push flutter into higher rpms and for longer life.
