the difference might be the spring tension, the Hi-Po 289 would have more spring to run more rpm

i'm not sure what you are referring to on the #'s but as far as points go... i've always ran "blue streak" by standard ignition brand they cost more than the el-cheapo one's but far superior as any i've ever used back in the day, not sure if they still make them??
they are in a blue box and the points look copper... like this:

DP5 is for standard single point distributors. 

DP6 is for hi-po dual point distributors. 

They are dimensionally the same, but the DP6 has higher spring tension, and doesn't last as long.
