      I may be wrong but, I thought Chrysler was using a Breakerless CD Ignition system

        IF?? you have points?? then someone's changed the system.
        ​jimmbo's right about it not having points.

        ​Inside the dist. is an electronic eye instead of points.
        ​Find a manual that covers your year and check it out.
        Not everyone has one on their shelf

        Also find a parts diagram and see if it matches your motor???
