People and the points hate!
The only problem with points is that you really should clean them as part of your yearly ritual, I usually have a points file around since my motorcycle has them, the boat has them, the truck has them.
I get years out of a set of points, but the distributor needs to be opened up and the points set. When you own an old BMW motorcycle setting points and checking valve clearance is a yearly deal, the boat is darned near bullet proof in comparison.
It'll only go pertronix if I install the perfect pass and need to.
