Shovelhead points?

I have a í72 flh with points and it runs great! I have sanded the points several times, so it is time to change them. I had a chart of Automobile parts that fit Shovels. Canít find my chart or remember what model points for a Chevrolet fit. Any help would be appreciated, Tictoe

Any early Chevy "stovebolt six" points, say 1950's or 1960's. Best ones are Blue Streak with a matching condenser.

Ask for ones for a car with a 250 straight six. I also use Blue Streak brand.

claydbal is reading this now saying WTF is this?
agreed, and if memory serves, sometimes you need to drill the hole that goes over the pin as some were just a little tight fit.

If the points are sparking a little, good sign the condenser is bad. New ones can be bad.
