If it won't start with gas in the cylinder, then you're probably going to have to go back to the ignition. This is why I recommend putting a new coil on it. Then you can leave the points in there and not have to worry about bad condensers, moisture, dirty or misadjusted points, etc...

Who knows how long that condenser has been in there, it may be the problem. They get weak.
