And nothing wrong with points. They are dependable (with normal dwell adjustment), and can be found anywhere. When that Pertronix module or MSD fails, you're stuck.
points not only are less reliable than modern electronics,they cost you HP,your plugs dont last as long,the engine is harder to start,bigger cams need a bigger spark especially at idle,,,,
I wont bother posting anymore obvious reasons to not use points,,,
