Ok we're getting a bit off track here at the moment, from oil sensor to carb to timing. For now, get the carb issue sorted. Once that is done, and this is just my own thoughts, I'd get the points replaced and set up correctly. Again I'm no expert especially on points (another reason I switched to Pertronix!!) but if you can use a dwell meter, or better yet, know someone who does. set the points to factory spec for your motor. With that done, you can move on to setting the timing again to factory spec. With all that done, it ought to run like a top.Oh ok I am glad you mentioned it, I wasn't aware. I was just looking at the system that works for my motor. What all should I be looking out for? I will be doing the coil as well, figured it didn't make sense to just replace one component.
Once you've got it running smooth, then you can start to think about performance upgrades.
Again this is just what I might do in this situation.
