Re: points condenser dist. cap rotor
What kind of a spendthrift buys NEW POINTS?
You don't buy new points, you buy an ignition point file and simply polish them back into shape for another 10,000 miles.
If you don't have an ignition point file and you're REALLY scrimping, you take a piece of 400-800 grit wet-or-dry sandpaper, fold it over so it is grit on both sides, and slip a hacksaw blade in the middle. Then you file away, same as you would with the real tool.
Two minutes work, no scrap, no waste. Can be done many times before those points are worn out.
