Customer Question
Trying to buy points...

Trying to buy points for my crusader 270v8 marine engine can you help?

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes boat issues seem like they'll be really complicated, but end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.

I cant find points that fit or match the points in my boat. I've purchased three sets and I'm down to just needing the points

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Marine Mechanic should know?

There are no part numbers on the distributor or the points

Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with? I read what you wrote. Can you send over a few pictures of your distributor and existing/old points set? If you can take a bunch of pictures from a few different angles that would be best.
