I swapped out my points for the kit that Don Moyer sells, and I will not 
ever go back.  I work on antique farm engines and drive old tractors & 
cars, so points are something I understand pretty well.  I have also 
seen them fail in numerous ways, from corrosion to broken springs, to 
connections that short to the distributor ground - and that is just on 
the ones that have been regularly maintained.  The Atomic-4 starts much 
easier & I get about 300 more rpms with the electronic ignition.  Yes 
electronics fail, but the whole ignition system is electronic either 
way.  My experience is that the sensor performs better and has been more 
reliable than regular points.  I am sticking with it & highly recommend it.
