Adjusting the Ignition Points

First you’ll need a feeler gauge! As seen below!

The ignition points are adjusted to .016 inches. Replace if contacts are pitted or the cam rubbing block is badly worn out! Add a small amount grease to the cam lobes. Also pull the ignition rotor and look in the center of the shaft it rides on. If your distributor has a felt pad in there, put a FEW drops of oil on it to lubricate the distributor drive. Don’t go over do it!
