1) 1993 190 has electronic ignition/no points, right?

1993 I believe had points. Many 93's like mine have been upgraded to electronic. Nothing in the manual about filling w/gas. Pump should fill it rather quickly.
Here is the manual, pages 25 and 29 I believe.

What is the easiest way to tell if I have points or not?

Take the distributor cap off and see if you have points.

Pardon my ignorance, but what does that look like?

My '91 had OEM electronic ignition (no points). I am sure your '93 has electronic ignition.

Your 93 should have a prestolite electronic ignition if stock, no points just a rotor and cap for maintence. There is an ocillating piece that does the controlling. It's a great low maintenace system

Just screw new filter in place. I don't touch gas if at all possible.

I did not fill my separator with gas when I changed it. It took a bit longer to start the next time (changed fuel filter too), but no probs since.
Good luck,
Kevin
