Yeah, I guess I can change the points faster with the distributor still mounted into the cylinder head. The same with the condenser unless someone has installed a non-original heater manifold that blocks access. Even then, use one of the A&L burn-proof condenser and you won't have a problem. Adding to that, even most burned point contacts can be dressed with a file and re-gapped quicker than most hobbyists can find where they have their spare distributer stored in the car.
