Do all the tuning things as recommended by these fabulous inmates. Old gas, water, and corrosion can easily mess up the idle circuit. I would take the Bings off, disassemble and thoroughly clean 'em. After installing and adjusting, check for vacuum leaks - that will affect idle. Points work fine; they are simple. I have the Boyer system and it has been reliable for many years.
