You're not burning up points do to a voltage issue.
You are buying cheap points and the gap closes in 4 hours, setting them incorrectly, have a bad condenser or you have slop in the distributor shaft.
The voltage will be unreadable if you are using a digital meter. Are you? (see tip # 47)
Solve one problem at a time. Forget about the charging circuit....the v/r and the generator. Just solve the points problem.
What brand points are you buying?
What gap are you setting them at?
What is the gap when they are "burned up"?
Have you replaced the condenser?
Any slop in the shaft?
