Tonga........you do know the 4-speed 8N had TWO different types of distributors, don't you? The weird 4-nipple frontmount points are set at 0.015" on the kitchen table. Ittza 2-bolt 15-min job to remove the frontmount dizzy and change and adjust 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. Now gently rotate yer rotor until the back drive tang fits into the camshaft drive slot. Tighten the 2-bolts and re-snapple yer capple. Simple, eh?
The more common looking 5-nipple sidemount points are 0.025". You can count nipples, can't you???
Remember to "polish" the INVISIBLE corrosion from between the points after installation. I clamp a clean $1-bill between the points and pull. Iff'n yer really cheap, tear a strip of HEAVY brown paper grocery sack and use that. ........Dell, yer self-appointed sparkie-meister
