<VV> Speaking of Points

I did rename the Subject, and I use points because Smitty told me too, I
figure that's all the reason I need. <gg>  This thread is a classic, not as
good as Lates are better than Earlies and Forged Pigeons are better than
Cast Pigeons (my personal favorite). Hit delete now...

Here are the "facts" (Smitty has a different perspective - he actually 
LIKES to constantly tinker with his engine, and actually, I sort of see 
his point). The real question is points or Ignitor 1?  With Ignitor (1 
or II) we have gotten 80-100k miles on plugs, sp wires and never have to 
readjust the gap. If your carburation is good (as in steve 
GOODman....heh heh) you will experience 0 - 5000rpms without so much as 
a miss - time and time again.

Have a car that sits for months at a time? Get in and get the fuel there 
- it will start every time. No condensation issues - no corrosion 
buildup on points etc etc etc. Oh yes, I have to (as a future board 
member) declare bias, conflict of interest and ex-parte contact. I sell 
Ignitors.... Lon
