I must be missing something, because I can't figure out the simplified method you mentioned for synchronizing the points by using a timing light. It sounds like a great idea, but the timing mark only comes up once per revolution (360 deg) during which 4 of the cylinders have fired (every 90 degrees of crankshaft rotation). Since the dual points hit for every other cylinder in firing order, the same set of points comes up again at the timing mark. To get to the alternate set of points you would have to shift 90 degrees away from the timing mark, and my timing light only will adjust up to 60 degrees. Do other lights go as far as 90 degrees or am I not seeing this right?
