    Yes, I think we got off subject a bit. Lets get back to a bare set of points and forget about trying to add additional circuitry to them to de-bounce them. The best thing to do when using automotive type points is to set the gap as minimal as possible (less than .005"). The second option is to make the points cam such that the points are normally closed and open very briefly right at the moment you want the engine to fire. If the points bounce then it shouldn't be an issue as the spark would occur after the initial spark required.
