Early Lincoln and Packard used very similar points

That is what I used on my 752

My 4b12 was drilled and taped to take ford tractor points i just had to cut off the tab on the backing plate that holds the connection point for the coil wire. Change the condenser and add a ballast resistor from a 60's points fired MOPAR will make them live longer. The resistor goes in the +12v wire to the ign coil.
