You actually have an "ignition trigger" on your engine now, the points! When points are closed a set of windings produce and electrical charge. When the points open, the electrical charge now goes into the secondary windings producing a greater charge (due to the number of windings in the coil) and this charge goes out to the spark plug. When your points open, this "triggers" the coil to fire the plug.

Back in post #16, you stated new coil, points, and condenser. Do you have the correct coil and condenser? Some coils have an internal resistor and some don't. You need the coil with the internal resistor. Condensers have a capacitance rating (in Microfarads, or Mf's) and you also need this to be correct. If points fit, they're correct, no "magic" to them...other than correct gap which determines WHEN the plug fires. Get a meter and feeler gauge and start there. Post meter make & model and we'll teach you how to use it if you can't figure it out. As complicated as the instruction can be they're really simple! Bob
