There has been a lot of bad stuff on this site about pertronics going bad.

If your distributor is NOT worn and you don't need more than 5000 rpm reliably, then a points distributor might be OK.

Points always have a lot of spark scatter and irregular timing when the plates and shaft move around. Variations of 3* are common on new distributors.

Go full electronic if possible, I like MSD.
