The last major repair for the engine was to fix the worn-out points and points plate bushing. The reproduction points cam that I purchased had not been correctly finished, and had a sharp edge at the beginning of the cam lobe instead of a smooth curve.
|The points arm, literally eaten away by the sharp edge.|
|The points timing cam. The sharp transition is clearly visible.|
|Smooth with no sudden transitions|
|Refinished cam lobe|
|The sharp transition is completed smoothed out|
