Default Re: clean that carb

If for no other reason ,I prefer the option of holding a feeler gauge in one hand while adjusting the adjustable point with a slot head screw .

Original points are so much easier to adjust and get a perfect setting of choice

When modern points are used in the model A distributor

It is usually necessary to prize and try to hold the correct position while tightening the screw that attaches the totally different V8 points to a modified upper plate .

I prefer the original points for a more accurate setting

Original style points was without doubt one of Fords better ideas

Ford liked to make things easy for the owner

I always like to make things easier on myself

If I wanted to punish myself I would listen to SAD country music

Though I did use the V8 points for a few years , I no longer punish myself with them
