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?

No issues with Mallory distributors here, I'm using my second one and I've used two of their unilite conversions in my hotrodding days dating back to the late 70's and I'm using their ignition box too. I order my cams with a cast iron gear or in Harolds case an everwear gear.
