melonized gear & Mallory unilite

I have a zz383 and was told I need to run a melonized dizzy gear.
So I went to local GM dealer got a gear and it will not fit my Mallory Unilite distributor pn 4748201. ( the hole in the gear in drilled on center and the hole in the dist. shaft is not, its at an angle)
GM says "run a melonized gear "
I called Mallory, they said there shafts are drilled at an angle not to worry & I don't need the melonized gear "there gear is fine to run with stock roller cams" but when I asked the tech at Mallory to give me his last name he refused.
Has anyone else ran into this?

Yes the hole is at an angle. tech guy at Mallory say that is because the drill walks when it hits the hardened shaft when they drill it. (well duh)
Trouble with runnning what GM says is that you get different answers as to who you talk to Scoogin Dickies or Pace Performance. Guy at one tells you that all new dizzys (now matter where you get them or brand) come wtih Melonized gears other place says no.
