  • 8N Front mt. Points
  • I purchased a set of points for an 8N front mt. and a set for a side mt. some time back.I purchased these at NAPA local and for the life of me I can't get the front mt.to adjust the .015 setting.I've noticed the points will not allow the cam block to ride against the distributor cam.Seems to offset about 1/16in from the cam.The two mettle spring clips seem to be holding the block from the cam.These points look same as I had.I've had these for awhile and lost the receipt.I guess a new set is in order?

  • NAPA part number CS35 or Standard FD6769 should look like these

  • A little ingenuity & a rat tail file & they can work. Shouldn't have to, but reality is reality.

  • There's been a lot of scuttlebutt lately about the ECHLIN points from NAPA having this issue. Even the side adjusting screw isn't working. I thought the problem was only with the CS-35 points used on the front mount distributor. Are you having this problem with the side mount set too? It may just be the ECHLIN points are now being farmed out to Cheena as well. My last ECHLIN point set from NAPA says Made In India..

  • Tim,,Yep,you named the set but says made in Mexico.This is a front mt. destributor.I called Napa to order another set but backed out because of price.I thought $30 was a little steep and might be from cheena.Good people to do business with but,,,,,,,, !
