LOL....Blue Streak stock, actually the company is Standard Motor Products and I should take a look at their stock.
Today I purchased a set of Blue Streak VW points for my conversion, part # GB4173XP. Here is some more information about this part:* 99% pure tungsten is used to make our contact sets, providing a longer service life.* A stainless steel spring is used to maintain correct tension on the contacts and eliminate corrosion build up.* A copper shunt is used to conduct the current flow providing less resistance to the circuit.* A self lubricating brass bushing is used to maintain point alignment and 100% surface contact.* A special blend of nylon is used to make the rubbing block which is held to the movable arm with 4 rivets.* All of these features add up to the longest lasting and best performing contact point sets in the marketplace.Here is photo comparing the BS to a set of Bosch. The Bosch points cost more! Why?The VW points come built with a pivot pin so two holes is all it takes to mount it, one for the pivot and one for the slot adjuster. I am going to retain my stock condenser because I have 4 or 5 laying around. I have two extra point plates and see no real problem changing over to this new set. I will post again once I've completed the mod. I'm excited that I will never have to mail order another points set and will be able to walk into any auto parts store and buy the part if it ever fails. This part is made in the USA and is by many user accounts the best made points you can purchase. Cyrusb has stated he's had his in for two years no problems which gives me the utmost confidence this mod will work flawlessly.
It's just softening the blow of the points opening, not tuned to anything.
Really!! You have obviously missed my point. And what does the statement above mean, inquiring minds want to know.
Go with the RE EI. It's simple, no fussing, install it in 10 minutes or less, set the timing, you be done until you wear the distributor out!
If your Boyer is just sitting in a bucket, I'd be happy to take it off of your hands. Scottie
