points question

It has been a while since I did GM points. Does anyone recall what size the alan wrench is. I have to stop on my way home from work and I am not sure I have the proper size with me.

Thanks

In a pinch, a torx will work if you have a full set of those.

point adjustment tool

Purchase a flexible point adjustment tool for a GM point type distibutor. It has the correct allen tip on it. An regular allen wrench is a PITA especially if you must stand on your head to adjust the dwell.
