Earlier in the fall I had a set of NAPA CS35 points for a front mount distributor that I could not get right gap set. I put a set from Carquest and they adjusted up with no problem.
I took them back to NAPA and they gave me a new set. Will today I put the new set on a different distributor and had the same problem. Can not get them to open enough to get the right gap of .o16, I can get .012 but that is it.
Anybody else run into this problem with the NAPA points?

Time to file out the adjustment hole.

What is the brand name on the parts? NAPA and CARQUEST are simply retail distributors, no pun intended. My NAPA store sells the CS35 points and they are the BLUE STREAK brand, and have no problem with them. There have been reports lately of the same problem, so perhaps they have now switched suppliers. The cheap point sets use a plastic rubbing block and will fail in short order. Blue Streak, Standard Ignition, use the original style phenolic rubbing block. Just for giggles, tell us the CARQUEST part number and/or the brand name.

Yes, I have had this same problem with my front-mount. But when I filed out the adjustment slot enough to obtain the right adjustment, too little of the point base remained, so it was weakened and wouldn't hold adjustment. So far my only solution has been to clean up and use the old points sets that I had saved.

KCTractors, I had the same problem so I filed the hole to make them fit. Apparently these points fit many different types of distributors, and the 8N now falls out of the "fit"

Any chance of a side-by-side comparison between the NAPA and CARQUEST points? Or, bottom to bottom, as the case may be?

I've got a picture around here somewhere of a set of Bluestreak points opened to .030 on a distributor w/ new bushings.

Means you got the same result on 2 different distributors, I'd say it is the points, but I would love to see exactly what the problem is.

I've had problems with several sets of points not opening wide enough. If you compare a set that works with a set that won't open far enough, you are likely to find that the little tab that rubs against the distributor cam is too short on the set that won't open.

" the little tab that rubs against the distributor cam is too short on the set that won't open. "

I'd like to confirm that.

I had the same problem with NAPA points for the front mount dist. They offered me a new set made exactly the same incorrect way. What junk!

Last set I replaced in the non-EI front mount 8N had to have one of the holes "wallowed" out with a small drill. Just took a few seconds to do it and it adjusted just fine. I don't like it any more than anyone else, but it is apparently a sign of the times we now live in. I believe they were the NAPA Blue Streak version whose part number is often noted here. No trouble starting since but I also replaced all wiring and converted to 12 volts at the time.

I bought a set of BWD A41 from Advance 2 or 3 years ago, would not gap more than .012, had to clean up old points sitll running.

The A41 replaced the FD6796X

In Kansas where I live, NAPA only sells Echlin and not Blue Streak ignition parts. Are you seeing the same problem with Echlin Points?

FWIW, SMP (Standard Motor Products) makes Standard Ignition, Blue Streak, Echlin, Neihoff, BWD, GP Sorenson, and and a handful of other brands.

Yep, me too, my error saying they were Blue Streak earlier. Never any problems with them. The TISCO and cheaper brands, yes, but never ECHLIN...CS35 NAPA p/n.
