from magnetic pick up to points!!!!!!!

About one year ago my 85 bronco with a 351 windsor and all stock just stoped running well i replaced the ignition box still no spark then the magnetic pick up coil (the cap rotor and coil all were new the minute it stoped) the coil had power to but no spark new wires no spark. so i had shucks test the box it was bad so another box still no spark had that one tested it was bad too three more boxes three more dead ones. Then i gave up towed it to a shop he said that he put an original ford box in and it started. so i go to ford get the box ($141.95) still no fire. so it sat for a year then i found a points distirbutor rebuilt it put in along with a msd 6al and boom she runs. So now to get to the ? is this common with the dura spark cause i have an f-150 with the same set up on it now no problem yet but i have my doubts. oh yea the dizzy with points is out of a 72 351 clevland (you have to change the dizzy drive gear and put the cap adapt rotor and cap from the windsor dizzy onto the clevlands to make it work)
Was this a good move or a bad one you tell me
