Points Gap

I am putting new points and condenser on my CJ5. The guy I bought it from had problems with the electronic ignition. That's another post!
When changing them I noticed the old points had NO GAP!! Could this been part of my problem?? I have never heard of no gap in points.
I haven't fired it yet. Picking up the new cap, rotor, and battery in the morning.

Thanks!!

Electronic ignition and points? Would need more info to identify what you have. The points gap is set by the cam tower riding on the distributor shaft. If they're not opening you'll need to replace them. Also make sure you put a little grease on the shaft where the points cam tower rides.
