I use instances such as this for incentive to do a thorough cleaning of my "busy" shop. Employ some young eyes. Pay them just enough for buying enough candy to make the sick. That amount is not 40 cents like when we were kids, so you will need to adjust for inflation.

Couple of photos.

So the original GM part number for that screw is 816784. GM made that number obsolete at some point and used 1914916 as the new number. The new number is now also obsolete. There is a guy on ebay selling a bag of 5 Delco remy screws at about $33.00 so about 6.60 per screw.

I solved my points problem by going to an HEI (Tom Langdon). One of the best investments ever, It ran much better and no breakdowns.
Unless you are into originality, I would say an HEI is a good way to go, my experience with HEIs has been excellent.

Do you have a ballast resister hooked up? Check voltage to coil with engine running. You should not be getting 12 volts there. More like 7,8 volts Point systems need a lower voltage to reduce contact wear.
