"I'm debating getting a new coil as I fill the spark was not up to pare."

We don't reccomend troubleshooting on feelings here.
We reccomend observing, checking and verifying.
I think Royse is on the right track; check your points.
This is what a good spark should look like.
It is bluish white and should jump at least 5/16"

It does not matter what all you replaced last year. Points can fail in a few hours or a few years.
Clean and regap your points. Then recheck your spark.
If that does not do it post back.
Do you have a test light or a multimeter?
We may ask you to check the voltage at the coil.
Again, we do do not troubleshoot based on anything but observation, checking and verifying.

If that is a good spark in that picture I for sure must do some metering. I'll probably just put new points wires cap and whole nine yards in it. With Christmas starting with my Family tomorrow It may be a few days. I do Thank all of you for the fast responce time. Maybe when I get home tomorrow I can pull it to my garage and work on it then!

Until you are 100% sure where the problem is throwing a bunch of parts at it can/will make the problem worse not better. All those parts will run you around $100 if not more and your problem could well be a simple $10 part if not a part the needs cleaned and adjusted. Points wear and need to be readjusted from time to time but throwing parts at a problem most of the time caused as many if not more problems to figure out how to fix unless your sure what is wrong

I'll have to disagree with UD on troubleshooting by "feel". It is Ok to say that something feels right or wrong, as long as when looking for help you include what actual observation of seeing, hearing, feeling, tasting, makes you "feel"the way you do. Generally, just being the next part in line to be replaced is not considered valid trouble shooting.

I've always thought of it this way:
Ask a woman how she feels about a subject.
Ask a man what he thinks.
I do worry about the sissification of this culture.
