Having read lots of recent threads on setting up the points, (Mike Procopio and others) setting dwell with an electric drill to drive the dissy on the bench (great idea!) etc, I took the dissy off the car to have a look. How do you remove the star shaped cover plate to get the points out? After removing the three c/s screws, the bearing is tight onto the shaft so won't just pull off. I tried very gently tapping the shaft with a rubber mallet but it showed no signs of being keen to come free and I don't think a puller would be a good idea on a soft ali plate. Yelcab I know I should replace the points with electronics and probably will eventually, but I still need to get in there!! BTW, when electronic systems are fitted do they add a carb potentiometer so that load can be mapped? I don't understand how Ferrari got away without something to replace vacuum advance. IMO Economy and performance should go way up. I guess this is what the dual points setup was suppposed to do, at least in part, in the 308 GT4.
