Why are distributor #'s so important?

    I have a 1940 Chrysler Royal, 241.5 six, and am wondering why the
    distributor # is so important in getting the correct points,
    condensor, rotor and cap? I have checked NAPA and Echlin makes a
    generic set for old flathead engines. Would these work? Or do I need
    the specific ones for the engine?
