So had a guy call me today wanting me to get his 8N running and wired up. Got the wiring done and went to put the points etc in the distributor. Found that the points where gone and the dust cover and rotor clip. No point screws so need to know what size they are. I am thinking there 8-32 and yes I know I will have to cut them so am I right and how long do they need to be?? Thanks
Have the dust cover and rotor clip ordered already and would have ordered the hold down screws if Y-T had them listed

One of us would sit on the left fender (away from the clutch) and other would sit on the gas tank and hold onto the crankcase breather pipe. ... [Read Article]
