Are you using a battery and coil or a mag?

If it uses a battery and coil---normally open, point gap? just as long as it is normally open.

I am using a battery and coil, no mag

I am talking about the point gap on the ignitor itself, I just got the engine and was checking things out and decided to take the ignitor out and check the condition of the points.

Is there a point gap measurenent or as long as they open maybe it does'nt matter.

I don't think there is a way to adjust them anyway, Is there?
