Model or type of vehicle does not matter. Any variance seen when measuring gap at different lobes is usually caused by worn distributor shaft bushings. Point gap specifications are often a range. When distributor shaft wobble allows point gap to vary more than the specified range, it eventually becomes impossible to get that engine to run as it should. Watch point gap while attempting to move distributor shaft side to side. "Too much play" is usually obvious without measuring.
