Electronic ignition back to points. Best set?

I have a 69 Z and want to go back to points system. Is there an absolute best points/condenser out there?
Thanks, Gary

Re: Electronic ignition back to points. Best set?

I just bought a breakerless-se points replacement kit because the points that are out there are just crap. If you can find a set of NOS GM not made in china you will get years out of them if you maintain them. Otherwise its a yearly replacement, and constant attention since the adjustment screw walks out on the knock offs.

Delco-Remy D227P -32 oz
Delco-Remy D106P - 20 oz
The 32 oz set is best for no floating at high rpm's, but will need adjusting dwell more often as block gets pushed harder.
Std set will last for a long time.
Look for a hole in the stationary contact for venting - cooliing of the contacts as they handle several amps.
