I was going thru points in a very short amount of time —point contacts surfaces were pitted
Less than 2000 miles ( only use the car 600 - 1000 miles a year on great weather days )
I can be confident it is not the condenser in the dist —-as I Always use the point and condenser combination and both are always changed as a unit and very often while having the short point life issue
I put a chrome shield on my coil for the look
I grounded the condenser above the coil to the valve cover hold down bolt as I felt it was not properly grounded with the chrome sleeve now on the coil and the point wear issue stopped
Is it possible that the AC coil surge that effects the radio noise is in some way effecting the point wear at the same time ?
It would be an electrical surge that would shorten point life I would be thinking
That is my own experience with that condenser and my solution to my premature point wear issue that worked
Am I somehow not understanding exactly what happened from my grounding of that condenser wire ?
Being my own experience with this condenser I am surely confused by the info posted about the part
