Bought a set of points and condenser from NAPA today. The points have a thin copper wire and a separate piece in the box ( NAPA # ECH CS725A) Are both of these used? the other set was just one piece that went back to the block to be tightened. Thanks for the help.

  Yes, you need both. The copper strap is a conductor, the other part is a spring. Both are needed, though some combine the two into one part. Just to convince yourself, install them without the spring, and see how well the engine runs. Wink  BW

Welcome to the page, cerescofarmer!
There's a reason it's called Ol' Unreliable
