I need to replace the points in my '72 280 SEL, but I can't find any information on the proper adjustments for the points. Can anyone help me out?

I recently had to set the points on a 1975 450SL, which had electronic ignition. I could only find a setting for dwell, and that is how Mercedes said to set them. I just set them to 0.020", which probably isn't kosher, but it ran fine afterwards.

Hi,
I installed a Pertronix Ignitor pointless ignition system on my M116 3.5. Took less time than replacing points and performs flawlessly-plus you will never need to mess with points again.
