with bad consequences for the rubbing block on the points.
While racing my Stinger in the 70s I used the springs from two  sets of 
points, greased the rubbing block , used dual shaft/housing  bushings , .012 
gap and 
ran 7500rpm 
Yes, I had to replace  them nearly every race weekend. 
Now I use a converted HEI  system form a Chevy truck.
