On the '66 230, what is the gap for the points? Is a 3/8 in. hex head bolt the original style that holds down the points or is it a screw (which I prefer)? I hope that I am being descriptive enough so that you can help.

Thanks,

Tony

It should be a screw, And the gap is best set by dwell. That is 32 degrees. Or if you prefer to set them with a feeler gauge set then at .017 to .019 thousands. The plugs gap at .035 and timing is 4 degrees before top dead center.
