Watched common motor collectives video on adjusting points, they said to add points cam grease to the points cam, I go to NAPA, ask for points cam grease, he looks at me like I'm speaking Portuguese, I go two other places, nothing. Does this stuff still exist? Is there another grease I can substitute?

A small dab of any good grease is fine.

If my memory serves me White Lithium Grease use to come in a very small Tube.
A Tube about 1/2" in diameter and about 1-1/2" long, and was used for the points cam.
Mostly because it had good sticky qualities that made it so it wasn't thrown off the cam and onto the points while the cam was spinning.

But all it needs is just a light dab to reduce the friction and wear.

I put a few small drops of light oil into the points cam 'felt' at the base of the points plate;that way every time the little points cam comes around to touch it(as the factory intended)a small bit of oil film lubes that points cam and keeps your points fiber blocks from wearing out.
