Getting an early start on the car before it makes it transition from storage to my garage. I picked up this Mallory Double Life a few months back with the help of one of the members here (thanks again John!).

This is the as received shots.

After along with a few of the components cleaned up. Hopefully I'll get the rest finished up this week and ready to drop into the engine if and when I decide to run it. Sorry if this doesn't meet the standards and quality of the group but its just a dumb ole country boy working out of his little 1.5 car garage.   Thanks for watching.

After seeing everything else you have gotten your hands on, I have high expectations for anything you do Cook.
 I don't care if you are working out of dog house, you better turn out some good sh*t.... ;D

Ok, so I have to ask, (after staring at the pics of this vintage "double life" distributor you just cleaned up): This distributor looks like it came out before i was born, what were the benefits over a stock distributor? ( I see the grease fitting, and it appears to be a dual points set up), but what is the canister on the side of the distributor? (larger HD condenser?) And then is the perpendicular tube (with grease fitting) for the tach drive assembly?
thanks

Yes dual points, external condenser is due to the stronger arch that is caused by the dual points to help reduce the arching to unwanted components and go straight to the plugs.  The benefit to this distributor is its ability to produce and send a stronger charge with the help of a stronger coil and has adjustable counter weights and its stability at higher rpms.  Now could I have went out and gotten a new better MSD distributor?  Yes but the cool factor of this being a vintage Day 2 component is the reason for the purchase and rebuild.  The grease fitting is correct for the tach cable drive for the SW tach I got from a fellow member here a year or so ago (Thanks to Gary).  Also notice the Moroso Cool Can in the back ground.  Also have a Super Coil but also still looking for a more correct Day 2 Mallory coil.  I think you will start to somewhat gather the direction of this build.

Thanks Chick.  That's the plan just not 100% it will fully hit the restoration road by then but we will see.
