1/16 scale pre wired distributor

Recommended Posts

I thought this would be easy to find but I am not having any luck locating one. I need one for the Green Elephant funny car. I have a magneto but the car needs a distributor. Any know who makes one ?  Thank you

I'm pretty sure the Green Elephant used a magneto as most of the nitro and alcohol racers did and still do, because you don't need a battery with magnetos as they produce the current nedded for the spark themselves, and some of the early magnetos looked like regular distributors like Cirello and Scheifer.

The magneto in the Revell funny car kits is a Mallory Super Mag 1.  The Super Mag transformer (coil) is separate - Revell molded it into the front of the block on the RH side of the front cover.  The transformer connects to the center terminal of the cap.  I don't think this is detailed in the instructions.

more detailed copies of the Mallory wiring diagram and instructions are on the web. probably a lot on the HAMB
