I have a Mallory Comp 9000 distributor and there are 2 wiring diagrams to hook this up. The first says using points trigger and the second says using magnetic pick up. The distributor has a unilite module. I think I should be using the points trigger method. Can anyone explain the difference in the two?

I think I've figured it out. I'm 90% sure its points trigger even though its not points but rather a unilite module in my Comp 9000 distributor. I looked at the MSD and Hayfire boxes and they both wire up the same except the Hayfire calls for a ballast on the ignition switch wire? Seems like one fix leeds to another problem.

Sorry, I'm busy with domestic projects today but when I'm done I'll dig out my wiring diagrams and take a look....

Post back if you've solved the problem....

It's been so long since I've done the deed I can't remember the details for sure...*G*

I've got a Mallory Comp 9000 also. Do you have an ignition module? a hyfire or MSD?? If you don't here's a web address that shows how to hook it up with the balast resistor.

Hope this helps. If you have a different configuration, surf this site a little bit, it should have the wiring diagram for you.

I have a MSD box. Some good articles in that web site! The part number of the distributor I have is 9156701A. I searched through all of the Mallory web site to find it. No luck! I still haven't figured out the difference between points trigger and magnetic pick up?

Actually, I've been looking through different tech articles and I have figured out for sure that mine is points trigger as all 91 series are.
