Is there something wrong with the points ignition? I personally believe these things are the answer to the question nobody asked. "Untainted by technology" remember ?
Are the ignition replacements offered in the RE parts catalog susceptible to over-advancing the timing like a Boyer with a low battery? I am probably going to buy the one with the Bosch coil,but I will see how it goes with points before I change it over-I just want to have one while they are readily available and cheap-I may fit the coil right away,though.
