We did just fine with points for many years. Hard to get the parts now though.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".
Be all that you can be . . .

I have a new set of points for it so that is what it will be.  The one I'm using will start in 3-4 pulls but for a 40+ year old saw it will hurt you if it kicks back.

My new inch/pound torque wrench came today so I won't need to guess anymore.

And use new rod bolts

And that's where we run into a snag.
