I am confused, if it has spark with the key on what is the problem? With the key off it would be grounded correct?

Sorry smallengineguy if I confused you the problem is there is no spark with the key on now,I replaced the points and condenser,and there is still no fire at the plug.I want to bypass the ingition,and all the wiring and just have a pull rope to start the engine.

So there was spark with the key on and you changed the points and now there is no spark? Or the reason you changed the points is because there was no spark even with the key on?

There should be a wire coming from the coil out from beneath the engine cover, have you tried disconnecting that and checking for spark? Try a continuity test between the end of that wire and a good ground. If you have continuity pull the flywheel and look for a break in the wire and it grounding out.

If that checks out and you are sure there are no cuts in wire go back to the points you installed. Did you run some lint free paper through them after installing to take away any oil from your hands? and double check the gap.

Let us know

he replaced the points and condenser as there was no spark and there still is no spark. he removed the kill wire still no spark. he has them set a .020, removed the wires from the switch still no spark.

Got it. If kill wire is disconnected I would inspect wires carefully between points and coil. Clean points. Check connection on spark plug boot. Next replace coil.

Has the plate that the coil mounts to been moved? You might try making sure the timing is set correctly before replacing the coil. On this engine, it is a little involved to check the timing, but it is critical that it's set correctly or it won't spark.
