So true, but the OP asked about points. In the old days all points sets were replaced at the same time with condensors, The points always came with a little packet of grease, it always looked like vasaline. I always applied it to the dist. cam VERY SPARINGLY so the nylon rubbing block on the points would not wear too fast and change the dwell. On single points (and dual points on Vettes) as the rubbing block on those old skool cars wears the Dwell and timing changes. These were 60s Hi Perf cars. I Learned how to set single and dual points. Now I also run Pertronix in my pantera and 64 vette resto mod. I also run a MSD in those cars.
