Burkie........those are FORD flathead casting numbers. Unless you are rebuilding the engine, all you need to know for tune-up specs; count the nipples on the dizzy. 4-nipples is weird frontmount dizzy and you haffta remove the dizzy to replace the points. (0.015") Ittza 2-bolt, 15-min job to remove the frontmount dizzy and replace the points (0.015") on the kitchen table. Just un-snapple yer capple and letter dangle. Installation is a reversal of the removal ...except... finger start the 2-bolts, and install the rotor. Rotate the rotor until the OFF-SET drive tang fits the camshaft OFF-SET drive slot. Now tighten the 2-bolts and re-snapple yer capple. Simple, eh?
The 2-bolt OFF-SET timing scheme is always in time.
The more common looking 5-nipple sidemount points (0.025") Do NOT remove yer dizzy 'cuz you will haffta re-time it. NOT funn.
Remember to "polish" the INVISIBLE CORROSION from between the points 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.
The Continental Motor is OHV (over head valve) while the Ford flathead valves are in the engine block.
DON'T MUCKA'ROUND with them handy-dandy carb tweek-ums. Iff'n you do, ASK and we'll give you eazy carb instructions. Manual ain't worth chitt on Marvel/Schebler carb.
Recommend you squander $25 (cheap) for the I&T FO-4 manual 'cuz it specializes in the Ford Flat Head engine. .........HTH, Dell
