I don't know why, but these Uni-points (points and condensor are one unit) gave me major problems. Had ignition stalls using them so replaced with seperate points and condensor which fixed the problems. Engine would die, any only start after removing and re-installing the points usually more than once:
Picture of inside the Distributor which i realized was not tightened down when I got home from buying the truck and driving it 50 miles home. I also found a small piece of metal floating around inside during a road side break down.

Power steering gear box used was a Saginaw from a 3/4 Ton which meant even better steering and less work fitting to steering rod had a 1/2 Ton steering gear box been used. Also a new Power Steering pump for less than $90.00 at the local parts store:
