I have the cork gaskets for between the cap and dist., and for between the coil and dist.
Where is the third one at?
I thought there is one for between the block and the distributor, but I called my Ford dealer and he said no, and I couldnt find a gasket set online..

Gasket between the block and the distributor one below the coil and one for the cap which gives you 3. Most of the time what causes the points to corrode is the fact that when the engine shuts down the points are closed so they in turn corrode due to touching each other. If you can figure out how to get them open when you park it then that would be a lot less of a problem.

Every time I shut down my 8N, I turn the key back on after the engine stops and watch the amp meter. If I see a negative deflection,(meaning the points are closed) I jog the starter button until the amp meter returns and stays at zero, before turning the key off. Then I know the points are open. I truly believe this practice has extended the life of my points.

Ya that works if your amp gauge works and or will move from the points being closed. I have seen many that doing that will no work
