waterman........you ask......"any way to test the condenser?"........Well, there are condenser testing meters that are $$$. You don't want to go there. Others can find a capacitance tester function on modern digital multi-meters
There are 3-failure modes for condensers.
1) OPEN...burned points; but still makes sparkies
2) SHORTED...NO sparkies, ...ie... points don't work
3) LEAKY...gradual disappearance of sparkies, usually 1-min time frame, will restart in about 5-mins
Bottom line, replace yer points and condenser as they come in a "kit". Points fer yer 5-nipple sidemount 8N are gapped 0.025". Remember to "polish" the INVISIBLE CORROSION from between the points after installation and adjustment. Me? I clamp a clean $1-bill between the points and pull. Iff'n yer really cheap, tear a strip from HEAVY brown paper grocery sack and use that. .........Dell, yer self-appointed sparkie-meister
