45" circuit breaker points

i am working on a 45" with 1961-73 circuit breaker timer with the later style points, i am looking to buy some high quality points and am looking for a part number for NAPA etc to match these points up, i understand the are used on early american V8 engines as well.
hoping some of the builders here have already done the cross over work and can tell me what to go buy.
I am aware these points can be purchase from vendors like J&P cycles etc.

Re: 45" circuit breaker points

What are these points, and how do they differ from the standard 45 points?

Re: 45" circuit breaker points

Run down to your local NAPA parts dealer (or whatever they are called).

Tell them you want a set of points for a Chevrolet 235 straight 6 engine.

I know when I was in the US several years back, neighbor of my mom ran them in his Harley.

Dewey would not ever walk in a Harley dealership, for points and plugs ect.....just went to the local parts store, and found what he wanted that would work.

No difference, just drop right in. HD went to a regularly available off the shelf part when they updated the timer ass'y.

What a long strange road it's been. Who'da Thunk points would become an "engine control device"? :lol:
