        Claude the v8 distributors have a complex relationship between the two sets of points. It is best to be timed on a distributor machine.
        Jim Linder is one of the best to do this.

          Google the "two ruler method" if your components are clean and in good shape, the ruler method of setting is very precise.

              I noticed that the contacts on the 1933 end caps are much thicker than the contacts on the 1937 end caps. Has anyone used 1933 end caps with 1937 rotors?
