I agree with smitty as a first try!
Put in a set of NEW points at the correct gap of .020, NEW condenser, and make sure the NEW spark plug gap, (usually .030,) is correct! (install these with the new coil)
After installing the NEW points, rotate the crankshaft to open the points then insert a $1 to $100 bill and drag it through the NEW points about twice to remove and light oil residue! (Use a $100 bill and you won't forget to remove it from the flywheel area before installing the flywheel!
If you are fooling around with new coil (Inside the flywheel) you will have to reset the BTDC timing to correct specs! (see a service manual for such) their are links for a FREE download manual for this model, I think) (if the BTDC is not correct you may see good spark, but the engine may now act like a bad carb!
