Are there any points that will work on a 1964 R60/2 besides the originals.
I am not trying to save money, I am just looking for points that will work.
Vech has none and doesn't expect any for a while.
Thanks in advance

Substitue Points ?

If you are asking about points that fit the original points plate, I think only the original-type points will fit. BMW gave the points the part number of 12 11 8 030 110. Noris still make points for this BMW part number. I don't know why anyone else would, after 40 years. Maybe Bosch does.

Since the points are good for nothing but old BMWs, you will only find them as BMW parts through BMW vendors, probably because Noris was enticed to keep making them by BMW's Mobile Tradition Division, of which Huggett is a tech resource. Huggett and Vech most likely supply the same Mobile Tradition points made by Noris. And if Vech can't get any more, maybe Huggett can't either, because maybe Mobile Tradition's batch of points is used up and there won't be any more until the contract with Noris is renewed and more points made. All speculation on my part.

If you are asking about other points that can be used in the /2, you can get a Pentacomm points plate:

It uses common 1953-1973 General Motors 8-cylinder points & condenser
Points: Borg Warner # A120V
Condenser: Borg Warner # G102A
Delco-Remy brand points were good but are NOS now.
Blue Streak Lubripoints #DR2270XP are supposed to be good because they have a brass-reinforced pivot and integral oiler pad.

Thank you both for the info.
I thought there might be a set of points out there that would be a sustitute.
Anyway I will follow the leads you both have given me.
Thanks again.
