mss3020........old fergott to remind you the points on the weird 4-nipple frontmount are 0.015". Ittza 2-bolt, 15-min job to remove the frontmount dizzy. Just un-snapple yer capple and letter dangle. Set/adjust the points (0.015") on the kitchen table. Installation is a reversal of the removal ...except... finger start the 2-bolts, then install the rotor and TWIST the rotor until the OFF-SET drive tang falls into the OFF-SET drive slot in end of camshaft. The OFF-SET drive scheme solves ignition timing as there are NO timing marks. Now tighten the 2-bolts and re-snapple yer capple. Simple, eh?
Remember to "polish" the INVISIBLE corrosion from between the points (0.015") after installation. Me? I use a clean $1-bill clamped between the points and PULL. Iff'n yer really cheap, tear a strip from HEAVY brown paper grocery sack and use that. It is IMPORTANT to polish the corrosion after installation otherwize you will BURN yer points. ........Dell, yer self-appointed sparkie-meister
P.S.......while the gray 9N/2N came from the factory with a 3-speed tranny, the early red-belly 4-speed 8N also had the weird 4-nipple frontmount flathead engine. The ONLY thing that really matters is counting the nipples for ignition parts. The later sidemount 8N's had 5-nipple dizzys.
