I have helped many with so called modern upper and lower plates that failed on the road.
Ditto, Some are going back to the original points, and some have stayed with them because they are the easiest most reliable points to work with. If you need to buy good original points, Jim Sinclair has some for sale, as well as the parts vendors.
