use a dwell meter!!

if you're not already, try using an old timey automotive dwell meter to set the points (while idling), instead of feeler gauges. It's the only way to get the points absolutley, perfectly synched with each other...
you'll never find a spec listed anywhere, even in the owner's manual,
but 45 degrees dwell seems to be the magic number..
(22.5 on an 8 cylinder scale meter)
also..a "crisp" dollar bill, folded just right & sprayed with contact cleaner, makes a good point cleaning tool..
good luck,
