look in your manual for the instructions for the distributor. should be a section on replacing the points. If not buy an FO-4 service manual. It is not hard to replace the points but you have to pay attention to detail.

The points are in the distributor. thye open and close to cause a flow of electrical current thru a coil. when they open, the colapsing magnetic field causes a high voltage spike in the secondary field of the coil. Do a google search for an ignition coil and find out lots you never wanted to know.
