This is not a matter of setting the points gap. This is a matter of a new set; no, two new sets, of Blue Streak points showing open when the point set is fully closed; points contact surfaces supposedly touching each other. Also, the point faces are not properly aligned as seen under a high power lens. So, Tim has indicated in another post that Echlin are now crap. I am now saying that Blue Streak are crap. I say this because I am not seeing an issue with the old points (which I could use but want to put in a new set). So, is TISCO now the points to use even with the plastic rubbing block? If I could get my hands on a NOS Blue Streak set, I would try them. I am told that Blue Streak is now manufactured in China and everyone knows how great the Chinese quality control is or not.
